"Take One Action's focus on empowering local audiences to engage through film with global and environmental injustice is unique in the UK. This work is really, really important."

Volunteer with us
Take One Action Film Festival runs in Edinburgh and Glasgow from 21 September to 6 October 2012. Join us as we celebrate the people and movies that are changing the world!
Take One Action Film Festival is looking for enthusiastic and friendly volunteers – of any age over 18 – to join the Festival team. We have three kinds of festival volunteers – each of which supports the smooth running of the festival in different ways. If you have the skills (and ideally some relevant experience) you can apply to do any number of these roles. We ask all volunteers to attend a training session, and commit to a minimum number of shifts during the festival period. Download the application form below for full details.
Typically, festival volunteers:
• Experience and contribute to a festival concerned with international cinema, popular education, empowerment, international development and the environment
• Get to meet like-minded people and watch some great films.
Volunteers can claim local travel expenses to get to the event, and lunch/dinner when working a shift that is longer than 4 hours.
