Volunteer

The festival has always been dependent on the energy and support of our volunteers. Our festival is a volunteer driven organization. Volunteers are the life blood to our operation, because frequently they are film lovers and filmmakers too. If you are interested in volunteering before, during or after the festival, please sign up and let us know how you would like to help. We can use your help.
