Want to gain experience working at a film festival that celebrates diversity and cultural heritage right here in Halifax?
My East Coast Experience Media is looking for volunteers to help at the 4th Mosaic International Film Festival.
The festival will be taking place on Sunday, March 26, from 11am to 5pm, at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21.
About the festival:
The Mosaic International Film Festival, presented by the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, is a celebration of diversity in Halifax. It’s a forum for unique storytelling. A platform for filmmakers worldwide to share their stories, experiences, and cultural identities with the people of Nova Scotia, Canada, through the art of film.
Founded as a local event for filmmakers to promote their work, it has since evolved into an international festival, bringing together a broad range of cultures from around the world. Today, the festival is aimed at providing an immersive and educational experience to those involved in the filmmaking industry, as well as aspiring filmmakers and artists.
Volunteering at the festival:
Volunteer duties will include:
- Greeting and checking in guests
- Providing wayfinding services throughout the festival venue
- Setting up and taking down corporate banners
- Managing wireless microphones for panelists and audience members
- Providing general operational support (runners that will be on hand to support with general needs)
Volunteer work will be split into two 4-hour volunteer shifts. Volunteers will be required to work on one of the following shifts:
Shift 1: 10am – 2pm
Shift 2: 1:30pm – 5:30pm
What we’re looking for:
Enthusiastic individuals who are committed to the tasks they are assigned, and who would like to get some first-hand experience at what it takes to run a film festival.
