Call for volunteers

AiM organisers would like to hear from you if you are interested in volunteering for the Africa in Motion festival this year. Because the festival will be a bit longer and bigger than usual, they will need even more passionate people to support with their time and enthusiasm! Looking for people with a bit of free time on their hands, great organisational skills, lots of initiative and boundless love for Africa to work on partnership building, seeking sponsorship, events organisation, publicity and marketing, market research etc. AiM reward volunteers with comps for the films of their choice and the chance to be in the centre of excitement during the festival, so it is definitely worth it!

Send an email to with "Volunteering" in the subject box if you're interested, telling us what you can bring to the festival!
