Global Health Film Festival 2020 - volunteer recruitment open | Global Health Film

We are gearing up for the sixth edition of the Global Health Film Festival, which this year will take place online 01-06 December

As with all our events, we are committed to ensuring it is a truly enriching and enjoyable experience for everyone who joins us, whether for one film screening or for the full six-day programme. 

We are growing our Dream Team of volunteers and looking for people from a range of backgrounds (global health, comms, film) to help us deliver this year's event. Could you be part of that team?

Subject to your interest areas and expertise, tasks could include:


  • researching additional reading and viewing material for participant resource packs
  • scoping out and developing niche audiences for each screening
  • assisting with communications and social media to extend our reach
  • working closely with film directors/distributors to ensure that each screening is as strategically impactful as possible

Festival week:

  • assisting the AV/producer team during the event; trouble-shooting, preparing speakers in the virtual green room 
  • amplifying audience participation and discussion in the chat side bar

We expect the time commitment to be a minimum four hours a week for a maximum of four weeks from w/c 09 November. 

For some pre-event tasks you will work alone or offline in collaboration with one or more team members, and then take part in very regular online updates and briefings with the wider team.

What's in it for you?

In return for your time, professional approach and enthusiasm, you will:

  • get unique exposure to - and develop your expertise in - the delivery of high-profile, truly global events in the digital space
  • make a tangible individual and collective contribution to global health learning and 'edutainment' at a critical time in history
  • have the opportunity to network and build your own profile with an international group of global health professionals, influencers, and film-makers
  • a free Global Health Film Festival pass

Next steps

Recruitment is now open and closes at 17:00 Tuesday 03 November.

We'll get back to you by 17:00 Wednesday 04 November if you have been shortlisted and will arrange a short telephone interview.

We look forward to hearing from you!
