Get ready for what is coming amig@s: Cinemaattic is looking for people to form a volunteer team for our September program!

For those of you that haven’t heard of us, Cinemaattic is the platform for Spanish, Iberian and Latin-American cinema in Scotland. Having short film nights as our trademark, we are also producing innovative cultural happenings that celebrate Spanish, Iberian and Latin-American cinema and culture. This September, Cinemaattic celebrates the best of contemporary Catalan Cinema in a week of features, shorts, poetry, spoken word, talks and special events!

Our Homage to Catalonia – Scotland’s Catalan Film Festival will see an amazing program and exciting venues both in Glasgow and in Edinburgh and we are looking for a team of committed volunteers to help us run it! So, this is where you come in!

We are looking for a team of exciting and passionate individuals that will assist in the operational roles of our festival (box office, stewarding, crowd control etc). So here are some reasons why you should be part of our team:

  • You will have free access to all the events of the festival
  • You will meet exciting new people from the film industry both from Spain and Scotland
  • You will get an insider’s view on delivering our festival
  • You will work with an experienced team of professionals in some of the best venues of Edinburgh
  • You will gain knowledge and experience working closely with a small team
  • And of course you will have fun working with us!!!

The festival will run in Edinburgh September 27th till October the 1st so if you are planning to be around Edinburgh that time and you feel like getting a taste of the best of Catalan cinema, send us an e-mail at with a brief description of any relevant experience and why you would like to volunteer with us. We love hearing from anyone passionate about cinema that wants to help deliver this incredible festival!
