Become a Film Festival Volunteer! The Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival in Hawick (Scottish Borders) offers great opportunities for film enthusiasts to work as volunteers.

By volunteering, you become an active partner in the operation of this Hawick event, with a strong global appeal. Because we cannot present the Festival without the hard work and absolute dedication of our volunteers, in return, we offer:

• The opportunity to contribute to Hawick’s cultural community, meet new people and have fun
• Access to screenings and events at the 2014 Alchemy Film Festival (April 3-6th 2014)
• A Volunteer Appreciation Evening

Volunteer positions we seek to fill are detailed below. Whatever your skills, they will be valued. If you have specific experience that you would like to put into action, please do let us know. Likewise, if you have particular learning goals you would like to achieve while volunteering, please be sure to share those with us so we can facilitate the best possible volunteer experience. While most of the tasks require you to be present in Hawick during the festival, it is also possible to fulfil some roles working remotely.
