Ffilm Llanfyllin is run by a small group of passionate volunteers who love film and want to do something positive in the community. We run regular films events most Fridays at the Old New Inn in Llanfyllin.

We are looking for new volunteers to help with our screenings and plan the future programmes. We are specifically looking for volunteers to help with the following:

  • Taking money for tickets on the film night
  • Ability to think on your feet and sort any additional seating or other problems that might arise on the night
  • Assist with technical logistics – e.g. press play on the DVD player
  • Programming film screenings and events

We don’t expect you to help out every Friday but would hope that you could help out at 4 screenings per season. For our Oct – Dec 2018 season we specifically need help on the following dates:

  • 19th Oct
  • 16th Nov
  • 23rd Nov
  • 30th Nov

This is a great opportunity to meet new people and get free entrance to the film!
