2018 VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT!

Volunteers are the true STARS of the SLO Film Festival!
In 2017, over 260 people volunteered their time and talents to help put on SLO County’s premier event. This year’s Festival is rapidly approaching March 13-18, 2018. Ever wonder how you get to be one of the friendly ushers at the film screenings.. or that cheerful person working our exciting events? It’s easy! Simply fill out and return an application found below. Reading the Volunteer Manual will give you an overview of what opportunities exist and what to expect while volunteering. Positions for Screening Hosts and some Events are now done on line. Approximately the third week of February, volunteers who have registered with us will be sent a link to sign ups. The date and time of the signups will be emailed and also posted here. Last year’s Volunteers are already registered to receive the sign up link.
