IFF Panama’s volunteer program is a unique cultural opportunity: join us to participate in the most exciting cultural event of the year… and experience good cinema with a front-row seat reserved just for you.

You’ll assist Festival staff with varied and essential behind-the-scenes work and have many chances to interact with Festival guests – including international filmmakers, event organizers, and surprise VIPs.

IFF Panama volunteers can choose to get involved in many different Festival activities, depending on availability and preference. These include:

  • in-theater assistance
  • ticketing and vote collection
  • guest services (guiding IFF Panama guests and audience,  providing advice & info on demand)
  • distributing documents to & attending interviews with local & international press
  • audio-visual production and photography
  • general coordination and logistics assistance
  • providing support coverage of Festival activities; including pictures, guest interactions, social media broadcasts, operations documentation, and more

Over 100 volunteers’ immense support helped make the 2016 International Film Festival of Panama the most successful edition yet.  Your efforts were obvious and immeasurable – IFF Panama is lucky to know you.

And we’d like to call on you again.
