Call for Volunteers-Treasurer and Secretary

Southside Film Festival was founded in 2011 as a response to the lack of local cinema on the Southside. In 2014, there are plans for a local cinema in Shawlands and a multiplex at Silverburn so the film festival thinks this is a good time to refocus the aims and objectives of the festival. Are you interested in joining us?

We are looking for new volunteers to join the festival to help with the organisational elements of all our activity.  In particular we are looking for a new Secretary and a new Treasurer to take up key roles in the film festival organisation.  

However, if you are interested in getting involved with the festival in other capacities then do get in touch. We are always keen to support those looking for experience in FOH, marketing, programming and event production. 

The amount of time you commit to volunteering is dependent on the role –the Treasurer and Secretary will have to commit approximately half a day a month to festival activity and to attend monthly meetings in the Southside and screenings when possible. For the other volunteers roles, you can give as much time as you are able to supporting film screenings and events, talks and workshops in the Southside.  

All positions are voluntary but as per the festival’s Volunteer Policy, expenses will be covered.  

Southside Film Festival is a volunteer run film festival, film club and film event producer which operates as Community Interest Company (SC418100).
