What does it mean to be a volunteer during the Oslo Pix Film Festival?

As a volunteer, we want you to commit to working between 15-20 hours during the festival. Oslo Pix lasts for 7 days, so you will have time to watch lots of good films! After completing the work, you will receive a certificate documenting your efforts.

What benefits do I get as a volunteer?

All volunteers receive merch, five free tickets and, in addition, the opportunity to see a film if there are free seats in the cinema at the start of the movie. You will be invited to a kick-off/gathering before the festival where we will talk about the program and get to know each other. As a volunteer during the Oslo Pix Film Festival, you get to meet many exciting people, you gain useful work experience and insight into what it's like to make a film festival.

When you register in the registration form, you will be asked to state which areas you are most interested in working with, and a little about your motivation for volunteering. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that everyone will get their first choice, but we will do our best to ensure that everyone gets to do something exciting!

Here are the different tasks you can help with as a volunteer:

Cinema host and info stand

This is the largest volunteer group and the festival's face to the public. You are responsible for one of the festival's information stands at either Ringen cinema or Vega Scene. You must be able to answer practical questions related to the festival, inspire the visitors and ensure the visibility and availability of the information at the festival's display locations. You will also be given various practical tasks related to the screenings and the festival area, such as administration of tickets, distribution of accreditation to guests, help with clearing and entry. As a cinema host, you will be helpful at check-in and assist with Q&As and discussions around the movies. You are service minded, tidy and prepared for both hectic and quiet working periods. It's not a requirement, but a bonus if you're comfortable holding an intro to a screening.


The events group ensures the practical implementation of all events both before and during the festival - such as opening party, closing party, special screenings, talks and receptions. The group is responsible for rigging, serving, guarding, purchasing and other practical tasks - with a common goal of creating a good festival atmosphere for the audience! You are practical, flexible and are happy to work both during the day and in the evening.


We need people who can patrol between the viewing locations. The tasks may vary; handing out pop porn, talking to the audience, or transporting an object from A to B.

Are you outgoing, have good sneakers and like to be on the move? Then this job is right for you!

Rig and decor

You will help with setting up and taking down the festival - both at our screening locations such as Vega Scene, Ringen Kino and in Grünerløkka, including Schous plass where we will have a big screen and a seating area. The big screen itself is rigged by the supplier, but a team is needed to help set everything else up. It’s a plus if you can be available the weekend before opening, but it may also be relevant to work the days after. It is an advantage if you enjoy physical work. We also need a small group ahead of the festival who will create decor for the festival area and the special screenings.


You want experience from all fields, and can be put to any challenge that arises. You want varied days, and are happy to take on an extra challenge. If you are flexible and curious, choose this, and we will find a good plan together for the week.

We hope you will be involved in creating the best Oslo Pix Film Festival!
