The T&T Film Festival (TTFF) is looking for volunteers for the ninth edition of the festival, which takes place from September 16–30.
A release from the TTFF said it was looking for people of all ages who love movies and share a commitment to supporting the growth of a vibrant film culture in T&T.
Volunteers will receive an official festival pass that gives free access to film screenings, an official T-shirt and as much verbal appreciation as possible. There is also the chance to meet filmmakers, actors and other film industry professionals from the region and around the world.
Prospective volunteers can fill out the online application form at: ttfilmfestival.com/volunteer.
