Employment and Volunteer Opportunities

Below are key volunteer opportunities in the lead up to the 27th Mardi Gras Film Festival.

If you are looking to volunteer at the festival onsite (13 – 27 February 2020), or year round in different capacities, please visit our Volunteers Page for more information.


Writers (Volunteer Role)

Do you love watching films?
Do you have a flair for words?
Can you convince an audience to come watch your favourite films at Mardi Gras Film Festival 2020?

Queer Screen is looking for volunteers to assist with writing blurbs for the festival’s website and printed program guide. Blurbs not only tell us about a film, they make us want to buy a ticket! These pieces need to be made up of the biggest selling points of the film. We want audiences to feel desperate to see it after reading. Blurbs are not reviews!

If you think you have what it takes, we would love to hear from you! Please send through an 80 word blurb of one of your favourite LGBTIQ+ films to vicki.gutierrez@queerscreen.org.au
