What previous MIFF Volunteers say about their experience:

"You always learn a new skill of some sort, or hone an existing skill which can be used in the workforce, or life in general."

"Helped to improve communication skills. Particularly the skill of being friendly yet authoritative."

"Definitely sharpened up my customer service skills."

"This was a great Festival! Would be very happy to do it again."

"MIFF certainly makes Vollies feel appreciated – so thank you!"

"Please let me volunteer again for next year!!"

"As it was my first time volunteering at MIFF, I found everything to be really well organised. From initial interviews, to daily bulletins, free passes and positive feedback from other vollies, etc, all went really well."

"Volunteering gives me the opportunity to build skills in managing crowds professionally but in a fairly safe environment. Also I get the opportunity to see what takes place in putting together an event like this."
