In addition, our opening ceremony will be interpreted in German sign language.

Join the Team


NIHRFF would be nothing without volunteers! Every help is important, because there is a lot to do during the festival – e.g. checking and selling tickets, subtitling films, or helping at our info counter.

We will publish details on our Volunteer meet-up in August 2021.

If you have questions in the meantime, please send us an e-mail to team[at]
