So far, the festival has reached over 45M people and 150K filmmakers in over 120 countries. Through relevant shorts, features, animations, documentaries, CSR videos and Public Service Videos or Charity videos, the festival advocates the United Nations 17 Global Goals and also celebrates the work of UK's marginalised filmmakers as a key highlight. OSCAR, BAFTA and EMMY award-winners, as well as other luminaries from film and media, sustainability, and policy have been part of the festival and have supported it since inception. Winners from the festival have eventually won OSCARS and EMMY awards. Working with executive team, the volunteer would assist and on occasions lead and coordinate the following;

What difference will you make?

At least 85% of people who first came to learn about the UN SDGs via the film festival were not aware of those at all, until now! This can give you an idea of the need for this initiative to educate the common man about the UN SDGs, its significance and the importance of inspiring them to act on the UN SDGs. Your initiatives will ensure that the film festival gets even more notoriety and visibility, thus improving its ability to educate more people about the UN SDGs, boost the festival's public profile, increase the festival's participation, and enhance the support from individuals and organisations.
