The International Festival of Literature and Translation of Iaşi (FILIT) is launching its call for volunteers at the 7th edition of the festival, which will take place in the interval 2-6 October 2019.
The volunteers will work together with the organiser’s team in the interval before the festival and during the festival itself, in the departments Guests, Logistics, Events/Projects, Casa FILIT, Communication/Promotion and Photo-Video. Some of the selection criteria are availability in terms of time, previous experience and/or speaking several foreign languages.
Applications can be made using the form available here, until 18 August 2019. In the interval 20-25 August 2019, the selected volunteers will be contacted by the organisers. Once the final selection is over, training and preparation sessions will take place.
FILIT is a yearly project funded by the Iaşi County Council through the National Museum of Romanian Literature in Iaşi, being considered one of the largest literature festivals in Europe. Only in 2018, FILIT meant 300 guests, 130 events, 34,000 participants, 150 volunteers, 32 creative residencies and a spirit of celebration of art and literature sweeping over the city and the county.
