Doha Film Institute seeks over 500 volunteers for third edition of Ajyal Youth Film Festival
As the countdown to the third edition of the Ajyal Youth Film Festival begins, Doha Film Institute is seeking over 500 volunteers to get involved and contribute to the smooth running of the event that will welcome thousands of Doha cinema lovers along with regional and international film industry guests.
During the week-long event, from 29 November to 5 December, volunteers will be on hand to support different Festival events and venues located within the Cultural Village Foundation – Katara, and help with all aspects of the Festival’s operations.
Volunteers will be exposed to the inner workings of a major cultural event, interact with Festival guests and jurors of many nationalities, gain industry experience, and receive a participation certificate to demonstrate their involvement. Interested candidates aged 18 and above can register on the Doha Film Institute website from 14th October at www.dohafilminstitute.com/filmfestival/volunteer
The third edition of the Festival will present daily public screenings of local and international films; special events and exhibitions; the Sandbox, an interactive digital playground; school screenings; Family Weekend; and the Ajyal Competition, comprised of hundreds of young jurors between the ages of 8 and 21 who watch and discuss shorts and features, and decide on Ajyal’s winning films.
