Fancy working as a volunteer at l'Alternativa?

Once again we’re calling for volunteers to work at the very heart and soul of l’Alternativa.

None of the previous 26 editions would have been possible without our team of keen, committed volunteers. Thanks to their enthusiastic hard work, we’ve been able to return every November to bring innovative filmmaking to Barcelona.

As a volunteer, you’ll get a unique insight into the workings of a living, breathing film festival. For a few short days, you’ll can catch screenings, help out at activities and, above all, form part of a team at a creative audiovisual event.

  • Certificate detailing volunteers’ role at the festival
  • Bar vouchers for volunteers covering evening turns
  • Access to screenings at the CCCB
