Volunteer with Us

Be part of the world’s largest Japanese Film Festival by volunteering with us! This is a great opportunity to make new friends, gain practical experience and learn the behind-the-scenes work of the JFF.

Volunteering is separated into two rounds:

1 – Pre-Festival: Assisting with promotions in the lead up to the Festival.

2 – Festival: Front of house support and event assistance during the Festival.

Each round has a separate registration process.
