About VOID IAFF
VOID Copenhagen is a non-profit organization that every year arranges the VOID International Animation Film Festival in Copenhagen, DK.
The festival is a 10-day long celebration of independent filmmaking in animation and every year it takes charge of fostering diversity in animation by bringing to the big screen the weird, the mind-blowing, the poetic, the unexpected.
The festival born in 2015 has since then been run completely by volunteers who share the same strong passion for the art and craft of animation and ambition to showcase more world-class animated storytelling.
Frivilligjob.dk is Denmark's leading volunteer job portal.
Volunteering is for everyone - we welcome all applicants regardless of gender, ethnicity, nationality, social background, sexual orientation or religious background.
