Film Fest Gent is based in Ghent and relies on a fixed team of nine staff members. Closer to the festival, the team expands to 50 staff members and 250 volunteers. Film Fest Gent has an open and informal business culture based on collaboration and respect. We believe in the durability and strength of a diverse team.
We are happy to help you further. Have a look at our most frequently asked questions.
