Volunteer with us!

Typical volunteer duties include taking tickets, selling merchandise and concessions, interacting with Festival patrons and guests, and/or helping with catered events. In exchange, volunteers receive a Festival t-shirt, lunch or dinner (depending on time of shift), the chance to watch films before and/or after their shifts, and our eternal gratitude!

Important Info

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and available for at least three (3) six-hour shifts during the Festival, in addition to one orientation session on February 11th or 13th.
