Watching a Movie



Athens Short Film Festival returns for its 3rd edition and we are looking for passionate volunteers to help us make it happen!

At Athens Short Film Festival we know that short films are harder to access, and have difficulties reaching larger audiences. However, their position outside of mainstream cinema and their length allows the filmmakers more experimentation and artistic freedom.  Athens Short Film Festival, in collaboration with Mikrokosmos cinema, provides an outlet to talented filmmakers to showcase their documentary and fictional short films that are challenging our ideas of cinema and art, and are telling a story worth watching.

Our 3rd edition will take place in the magnificent Mikrokosmos cinema in the heart of Athens on Saturday, October 29th. To make it happen we will need self-motivated and passionate team members that will help in a variety of roles.

We are looking for people that will help us by taking up the following roles:

Press and marketing assistant: You will be helping us promote our festival through different platforms including social media, print press and online marketing. If you are looking to sharpen your marketing skills, this is for you! For this position we will be needing you both before and during the festival.


Production assistant: If you want to get involved in the event production, look no further! You will help us set up the cinema and make sure that everything is going smoothly on the technical side. As a production assistant, we will need you mainly the day of the festival.

Front of house: This is your chance to work on your communication skills! You will be helping us in welcoming the guests, making sure that the health regulations are followed by the audience and spreading our enthusiasm to the audience.

Photographer and videographer: In this position you will make sure that no smile goes to waste! You will be helping us primarily during the festival in documenting it.

What will you gain from this experience, you ask?

  • You will meet many new people including filmmakers and distributors

  • You will have the chance to work with an experienced team and learn new skills in a unique cinema

  • You will have food and soft drinks on shift and discounts in the cinema
