Join a Movies that Matter On Tour committee

From October, the new Movies that Matter On Tour season 2023-2024 will start! Will you join one of the Movies that Matter On Tour volunteer groups as a committee member in the autumn and help organise the in-depth programme at an On Tour screening?

Movies that Matter On Tour is a spin-off of the Movies that Matter Festival in The Hague. From October to May, one film per month tours through seventeen movie theaters throughout the Netherlands. An in-depth programme is organised for each film, in the form of, for example, an introduction, discussion or Q&A. But also think of a quiz, exhibition or spoken word performance.

Each On Tour city works with its own volunteer group. As a volunteer of the On Tour group, you are responsible for the in-depth programme in your city: you invite guests, organise the evening and draw attention to the screening through promotion. The (chairman of the) committee maintains regular contact with Movies that Matter and the film theater concerned.

The volunteer position requires around 2-4 hours a week of your time and in return you get a lot of knowledge, special experiences and an expansion of your network.

Are you interested in films about a just and sustainable world and do you enjoy organising cultural events? Let us know by sending an email with a short motivation to On Tour coordinator Babs Anemoon Pol. Please indicate which city/cities you are interested in so that we can inform you about possible available positions.

NB: On Tour is currently on summer break. The new season starts in October, so the volunteer groups will not start their preparations again until September. The On Tour volunteer group Leiden in particular is looking for new members for after the summer.
