Cliftonville Outdoor Cinema

Cliftonville Outdoor Cinema is returning in 2020 and will have three outdoor events coming to Cliftonville in the summer. To help make this event a success, GRASS Cliftonville needs a strong team of passionate volunteers to be part of the event.

As well as being able to watch these fantastic films on our screen, volunteers will get training and the opportunity to experience volunteering at events. Volunteers will also get a taste of event management on a small scale with this hands on approach working with a small volunteer community group. This is a great opportunity to see the behind-the-scenes workings of a an outdoor cinema event.

GRASS requires volunteers to be enthusiastic, engaging, passionate about film and professional.

You will be asked to greet audiences on the gates, take money, tickets, answer questions, pack down and clear up. You may need to help audience members find their way around the site, locate suitable seats and have a basic understanding of the film being shown.
