Our volunteers are an essential piece of Festival success. As a volunteer, you will meet wonderful people and, of course, see great films! Whether you're a Festival newbie or a seasoned volunteer, anyone over the age of 16 years-old can join the team. From students to retirees, the only requirement we have for our Festival and year-round volunteers is a love for exceptional films!
