The Youth Volunteer Programme (the Programme) is a training programme for young people in Hong Kong to be future leaders, programmers and arts administrators for a thriving arts and cultural environment. The Programme will introduce volunteers to the programming, marketing and operations of Asia's leading film events, including the Hong Kong International Film Festival (HKIFF) and the Summer International Film Festival (SIFF).
Selected young volunteers will be given rare opportunities to participate in "behind-the-scenes" of the HKIFF and the film industry. Volunteers will be trained in transferable skills and rewarded with a wealth of film knowledge, unique experiences and a chance to make some great friends. Here are some of the interest areas that volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in:

As a film enthusiast, I am happy to join this volunteer program because there were many chances for me to learn more about the film industry. I have chance to attend lectures by professional filmakers and meet many interesting people. I also can enjoy watching different kinds of films during the festival. All in all, it's a great experience!

Being part a volunteer in the film festival, I learned more about local film productions and film history. Besides, I took valuable lessons from experienced film critics during the festival tours. The programme also boosted my sense of community and support towards local film productions.
