The volunteer drive for DIFF 2010 will be held on November 22, 23, and 27 in Dubai’s Knowledge Village auditorium.

The final session, on November 27, is open to all interested applicants and will be held from 5 pm to 8 pm.
Mohammed Alhousani, DIFF human resources and volunteers manager, said: “The film festival is a community event that brings together people from all walks of life. Over the years, several hundred people have volunteered their time and efforts for DIFF, and have benefited from the rich learning experience of putting together one of the biggest and most rewarding events in the UAE. We look forward to the strong participation of UAE residents this year too.”
