InScience Film Festival


InScience is thé science film festival of the Netherlands. The festival takes place annually in March in the centre of Nijmegen. We are in need of a group of enthusiastic volunteers who support the InScience team before, during and after the festival to make it a success. Will you lend a hand?

Volunteering at InScience Filmfestival

The divers film program, the many extra activities and the presence of a broad festival audience (over 11.000 in 2023) and more than 200 national and international scientists and film professionals, directors and film producers create Nijmegen into a meeting place for science, film and art during InScience. To keep everything running smoothly we could use your help!

Will you be our fantastic reporter who captures that one moment on camera or in writing that catches the eye of the social media addict? Or are you the welcoming presence at the information desk who helps visitors find their way? Or do you see yourself coming to the rescue of the building team? We have a task for everyone! You can also help out in the days before and after the festival, for example by putting up posters or decorating.
