- Film Festival
We want you!
Volunteer opportunities at the 21st annual Philadelphia Film Festival (October 18-28, 2012).
Each year, the Philadelphia Film Society relies on hundreds of volunteers to play a pivotal role in the day-to-day operations of the film festival. Volunteering is a chance to meet local cinephiles just like you, become a part of a Philadelphia tradition, see some great films while you're at it! It is a wonderful opportunity for students, seniors, and anyone with a few hours on their hands and a passion for movies.
Volunteer duties range based on the event, but volunteers should have a knowledge of the films being played in their theater during their shift and the locations of other screenings near by. Don't worry, there will always be people around to help you out!
We are always looking for:
Guest Check-in Assistants
Membership and help desk administrators
Box office personnel
General Event Staff (May need to be 21 or older)
Festival scheduling runs on half day shifts (approximately 5-6 hours) throughout the run of the festival. For each shift, you will receive one ticket voucher, redeemable at another film in the Festival or at a year-round filmadelphiaEXPERIENCE screening.
WE HAVE TWO NEW SPECIAL SCREENINGS!
On October 19th, we have a Special Midnight Screening of Miami Connection.
On October 20th, we will be having a Special Midnight Screening of Universal Soldier 3D!
We are looking for volunteers to help out! Both shifts will be at the Rave from 11PM to 2:30AM. Email Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for these and other shifts!
