Preparations for the 11th edition of the Ajyal Film Festival are well underway and organisers have invited people to be a part of the event as volunteers.

The Doha Film Institute (DFI) has urged Qatar’s residents to get involved and contribute to one of the region’s major cultural events, from November 8 to 16, which brings communities together to celebrate cinema’s transformative power.

The DFI’s Ajyal Volunteer Programme will give residents an opportunity to gain firsthand experiences and interactions with the country’s growing film industry.

Volunteers will get to work across diverse aspects of the festival while strengthening personal and professional skills at the same time.

Volunteers will get to learn about the inner workings of a major cultural event, gain valuable industry experience and receive an appreciation certificate to honour their involvement.

Interested candidates who are aged above 18 can register their names on the DFI website. There are only 300 spots available.

Fatma Hassan Alremaihi, Festival Director and Chief Executive Officer of DFI, said: “What makes this unique cultural celebration successful is the active engagement of the local community and the enthusiastic participants of our Volunteer Programme who represent Qatar’s multi-cultural fabric.

“Through their hard work, selfless service and dedication, Ajyal volunteers ensure the festival’s seamless conduct. They’ve played a significant role in the success of the festival’s previous editions. We’re once again looking forward to welcoming an amazing team of volunteers to put together one of the most exciting events on the city’s social calendar,” she said.

During the Ajyal Film Festival, volunteers will be on hand to support different Festival events and help with key aspects of the festival’s operations including venue operations, Ajyal Jury, transportation, guest services and registration, Geekdom among others.

The festival will showcase the best in international cinema, the popular Made in Qatar programme, a multimedia exhibition, lively concerts, Qatar’s largest pop-culture event ‘Geekdom,’ and more.
