Film Festival Marketing Volunteers
Are you social-media savvy? Can you create interesting marketing campaigns for our Festival that capture the imagination of Glasgow audiences? Full of good ideas and have the skills and experience to implement them?

We need 2 creative thinkers, starting August 2019, to join our Marketing team. You will lead on creating and managing quality content for our Instagram or Twitter accounts or working with our Digital Marketing Officer to conceive and deliver innovative new marketing strategies that attract new audiences. You will attend our monthly marketing meetings and work on independent projects leading up to the Festival. Time commitment – 10 hours/month from Aug – Nov. Expenses will be paid. Send a CV and covering letter to by 5 August 2019 stating which of these roles you would suit most and why you want to be part of HGFF.

Film Festival Events Volunteers
Are you enthusiastic, organised, unflappable and brilliant with people? Want to be part of a buzzy Cuban Film Festival?

We are looking for 10 people to volunteer front of house during HGFF in November 2019, though pre-event sessions and training will begin in September. As well as having your expenses fully covered and a chance to see some amazing Cuban Film, you will be working in a close-knit team and learning what happens behind the scenes at a Film Festival. You may be selling merchandise one minute, ensuring a Cuban actor is ready for a Q+A the next, taking audience evaluations or liaising with our partners to make sure those last minute seats are still available. Spanish is a bonus, but not essential.

To apply, send a CV and covering letter to by 20 August 2019, stating why you are the right person for this opportunity.
