“FEST was my first volunteering experience and I could not have picked a better one. In this wonderful team, I found huge support and people eager to create the best environment possible and the best experience for us, volunteers, but also for the participants of the festival. There is a great passion for Film and a need to share it. I loved having the opportunity to meet many people, from various parts of the globe, with that same passion. I hope to come back.”
