Be part of the Making

Calling for Volunteers

We are looking for enthusiastic and dynamic volunteers to join this year’s Doc Edge Festival.

This year’s festival is a big one. Accompanying the screenings, we have multiple red-carpet events, Q+A’s with the filmmakers and performances pre and post some of the screenings. On top of this, Doc Edge will be running the largest XR exhibition the festival has seen with a variety of Immersive experiences from VR headsets that touches topics from mental health to sociocultural and environmental impact, a New Zealand AR experience making a pacific totem come to life, an AI experience inviting couples to test their relationships and projection screenings that challenge the traditional form of documentary storytelling.

With all of this in mind, we are inviting you to volunteer with us as we will need some extra hands-on-deck to assist the doc edge team as well as the movie and exhibition go-ers. There will be guidance and training prior to your shift. If assisting with the XR exhibition, some basic understanding of technology is helpful but not required.

You will be part of event & festival experience that includes
− Access to Doc Edge screenings and events
− Access to the XR Exhibition
− Working within a dynamic and professional team
− Network with new people and industry workers
