The Guerrilla Staff is made up of young people and students who are passionate about cinema and who have the drive and curiosity to participate actively in the organization of the Biografilm Festival.
Being part of this team is a unique opportunity to test the skills acquired during your studies, to meet people with similar interests, to shadow and collaborate with the staff in the bringing together of a complex and engaging cultural event.
The Guerrillas are also privileged spectators: Biografilm works hard to attract a large number of volunteers each year, so that everyone has enough free time to attend the screenings and participate in side events.
For the past two years, the Guerrilla Staff represents a special jury that is tasked in assigning the Guerrilla Award to one of the selected films as well as the friendliest guest of the Festival.
