Volunteer shifts run approximately 3-4 hours.

  • You’ll work with a team of Volunteers that enjoys movies just as much as you do.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to view films before they are released (as well as some that may never be released).
  • You will have a rewarding experience while being treated with courtesy and respect.
  • Although you will work hard, you can expect to have fun.
What we expect from Volunteers:
  • We expect you to arrive for your scheduled shift on time, dressed appropriately, and ready to work.
  • If you are unable to make a shift or are running late to a shift, we expect you to contact one of the Volunteer Coordinators immediately so we may ensure the Festival runs smoothly.
  • We expect you to treat everyone with respect .Friendliness and a smile can often make someone’s day. Remember, you officially represent the Festival.
  • We expect you to become familiar with the information in the Festival Film Guide.
  • We expect you to work to your fullest capacity, but allow yourself time to enjoy the Festival.
