Volunteers

Our volunteers strongly believe that creativity can inspire and empower individuals and entire communities to produce positive changes around them.

The Big Syn Institute welcomes applications from across the world to assist in one or more of its ongoing initiatives. Volunteers are currently involved in activities of the 2019 Big Syn Film Festival—from publicising the festival to administration and management of the online screenings, to preparing artwork, graphics and content as well as communicating with the applicants, partners, sponsors and patrons.

Apart from the Institute’s and the film festival organising team’s eternal gratitude, the volunteers also receive other perks and memorable experiences. However, perhaps the most important thing they get out of their experience is the feeling of accomplishment in being part of an international initiative that is bringing positive changes to the world through creativity.
