Do you want a fairer, more sustainable world? Do you love international cinema and enjoy making links with other people who feel the same? Then join the Take One Action Film Festival volunteer team!
Take One Action run the UK’s leading global change film festival, celebrating the people and the films that are changing the world. Our year-round screenings and events connect individuals and groups through film, creativity and action for a better world – starting from Scotland.
We are currently putting together a fantastic team of enthusiastic, questioning and friendly volunteers to help with this year’s festival which will run from 18th – 29th September in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Whether you are passionate about social movements, interested in festival and event management, keen to (re-)connect with your community through film events and conversations or just looking for a new experience, our volunteering opportunities have something for you!
As well as assisting with the delivery and logistics of the festival in September, volunteers will have the opportunity to get involved over the summer months by helping with the marketing and promotion of the festival, the programming of our short film programme and have the opportunity to create and deliver your own events as part of the festival.
In return for your time and commitment volunteers will be able to gain direct experience of working for an exciting, unique global-change film festival; have access to fantastic films; contribute to engaged, urgent discussions and be part of a close team!
All travel will be reimbursed and volunteers will also receive 1 complimentary Festival ticket per shift worked which can be used across any screening/event at the festival.

“I valued the inclusiveness and the positive atmosphere. The team made great efforts to truly make us part of the festival and not just a convenient ad-hoc help.” 2017 Volunteer
“When I signed up to volunteer for TOA, I wanted to gain some experience in the film industry. I feel I have done this and more! The films were brilliant as was the enthusiasm of the organisers and volunteers!” 2017 Volunteer
