Why Volunteer?

Many budding filmmakers and film lovers find volunteering for our festival to be a wonderful experience and easy on the budget. Not only do you see how festivals work, but you get to learn and support cinema as Indie film festivals are a hotbed for up-and-coming filmmakers looking to develop their craft, make connections, and launch their brands

  • Volunteering gives supporters access to screenings, panels, events, and more for free
  • Meet filmmakers and network with attendees to learn more about the craft and fulfill your love of cinema
  • Support your community, while getting a behind-the-scenes view of the industry and if you are a budding filmmaker, you get the advantage of learning how festivals work to better present your work
