call for volunteers pdsff23

It’s this time of the year!

As we’re collecting shorts from all around the globe, we’re actively looking for our PDSFF23 film selection Volunteers’ team. 

PDSFF23 | Resistances is a trans-local cinematographic space of creation and resistance. We collectively negate existing orders that disconnect and confine persons, communities and struggles. We make room for a new space where we can be together in all our diversity – safe and brave at the same time.

The main event will be held in Athens, however, simultaneous screenings of awarded films will take place in Berlin, Bologna, Zagreb, Malta, Barcelona and Dakar. 

What you will gain from joining our team: 

  • Experience and professional training on:
    a. film critique
    b. the intersectionality framework
    c. event accessibility
  • Collaboration with an international team of committed and motivated people
  • All access to screenings and side events

What we’re looking for:

  • Cinema related experience (professional, educational, volunteering)
  • Interest in the topic of intersectionality
  • Sense of responsibility
  • Inclusion mindset 

Complete the form below and let us know if you would like to volunteer only for the film selection process, or for the festival event as well, which will take place in Athens, 16-19 March, at Trianon cinema. 

Please also indicate if you would like to volunteer only online or also in person, so we can make the necessary training arrangements.

~ PDSFF22 volunteer testimonials ~

“Positively Different Short Film Festival is a great festival! From my experience as a volunteer I got to know better its ideology, the people behind the festival and of course watch many films that investigate intersectionality through a cinematic and sometimes poetic gaze.  I especially enjoyed the communication with the organizers, who were both friendly and professional.  But, apart from the preparation, I really enjoyed my experience during the days of the festival, as well as the connection with people who came to watch hard-to-find and extremely exciting films.” – Dimitris A.

“The PDSFF22 experience found me in a situation where I had to join every meeting from a different city in Greece, if not abroad. This shaped the outlook and mood with which I entered each meeting or exited a weekly “home viewing session”. What definitely didn’t change all these months was the feeling of having a cinephile group to discuss with, the sense that all opinions fitted without anyone being judged of right and wrong ideas and of course the anticipation for the in-person meetings. Which finally came and gave a third dimension to the people who became the festival for me 🖤 three things I am keeping: movies that touched me, people who hugged me and mulled wine in cold entrance halls” – Marina B.
