They are the pillars on which the largest annual European wildlife film festival rests. Without them, a festival of this magnitude both addressing and largely run by the regional community would not be possible. Every year, more than 100 volunteer helpers support the festival organisation team before and during the event, ensuring a smooth run and content visitors.

Our presenters are another important component of the helper activities during the festival. Not only do they announce films, but they also provide visitors with background knowledge on the nature film productions. Following each screening, they direct the discussion between the audience and attending filmmakers.
The professional translator team provides international guests with all important information in English before and during the festival. They translate texts for the program and the website and provide simultaneous translation during gala events and workshops.
