Event Manager:

Monster Fest is a beast and it needs serious management – you got a planners head? Yes… then we need you!

Guest Coordinator:

Monster Fest guests need careful management, they need picking up, dropping off, pampering and chaperoning but above all, they need TLC – do you have what it takes?

Like all good festivals Monster Fest depends heavily on sponsors – we need someone to head this department and help bring the good stuff to Monster Fest – if you think you have skills to offer here, we’d love to hear from you.

Materials Coordinator:

Monster Fest is about films – films that come in various formats from various sources from various places around the globe – this needs serious coordination – is this the job for you?

Cinema Nova is the dream location for Monster Fest and we need someone to work close to the cinema to control things on the ground – they’ll need to manage the on-site volunteers, guest lists, merchandise, in cinema events and promotions etc – if you think you can help we’d love to hear from you.

Monster Fest volunteers are cool, sexy and popular!

Yes? Then PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.

What does a Monster Fest volunteer get for their hard work?

We will also supply references and any other materials that you might need to help you professionally in your area of expertise.

There will be other fringe benefits too folks, you’ll walk the street with a spring in your step knowing that it is you, and fiends just like you, who are responsible for the moral decline of Australia’s viewing public – what’s more you’ll be cool sexy and popular, look at this guy…
