Become a volunteer

The Netherlands Film Festival (NFF) is both the home of Dutch cinema and the leading platform for the Netherlands’ national film culture. The festival can't exist without volunteers! Everyone is welcome to participate and help make NFF an unforgettable experience. Each edition, around 300 volunteers work in several positions: from scanning tickets to laying red carpets at the various festival locations. Are you joining us this year?
