Volunteers play an integral role in the coordination of the Festival and are an important part of the team. They have the chance to meet new people, make friends and learn new skills in a creative, fun environment. SFF values the time and expertise generously contributed by volunteers each year.

In keeping with its mission and values, SFF recognises the importance of equal opportunity and diversity in creating a healthy team environment, and promotes a safe culture that is free from discrimination. SFF welcomes volunteer applications from First Nations people, people with disability, LGBTQI+ people and those who come from culturally diverse backgrounds.

Volunteer Applications for the Sydney Film Festival 2021 have now closed. Thankyou to all that applied and your ongoing support of the festival.

If you have any questions about this year’s Volunteer Program, please contact volunteers@sff.org.au.
