Stand up for human rights through creative documentary films!
Application deadline: September 20, 2018
Each year we work with ca. 40 volunteers without whom Verzio wouldn’t exist. At least it couldn’t be a vibrant, soulful and human festival. Volunteers’ work is crucial from the first year of Verzio. They help with preparations and the smooth execution of all the programs. Our diverse team members share similar values: respect for human rights and love for documentary cinema. Many volunteers return year after year, forming a year-round community around the festival. We invite you to become part of our team! Meet directors, filmmakers and learn about the hottest social documentaries of recent years at first hand.
We await your application, join the crew of 15th Verzio Film Festival! We reply to everyone.
