Leeds Young Film Festival (LYFF) the UK’s largest family film festival is back this Easter Weekend, Friday 19th April 2019 – Monday 22nd April 2019


So of course that means we are in need of some amazing volunteers!

If you’ve volunteered with us before (LIFF, LYFF, INDIs) then we would love for you to apply for Leeds Young Film Festival 2019.

Roles include: Workshop Assistant, Event Support, and Runner

Digital Volunteer roles: Photographer, and Videographer

If you have an interest in animation/film/virtual reality, event management or have experience working with children and young people, then volunteering at LYFF is ideal!

A lot of our volunteers are from across the Leeds area, so it’s also a brilliant opportunity to make friends, and have the incredible experience of working alongside some of the country’s industry experts in animation, film & television.

All we ask is for you to complete and send back your application form, (which contains two excel sheets) and a passport style photograph to leedsfilmvolunteers@leeds.gov.uk

(We require the photograph for accreditation purposes as we are a child safe festival).


The closing date for applications is Sunday 17th March 2019 and if selected, you are required to attend our volunteer induction day Wednesday 27th March 2019.


We can’t wait to hear from you!


Please note: The Volunteer Application form may not work on mobile devices, and apple mac users should download the excel document to Google drive or to their desktop to complete.
