Wild & Scenic Volunteers Are Bursting with Excitement
“I love the Wild and Scenic Film Festival… So much activism, so much positivity, all the good vibes.”
“This will be my 3rd year as volunteer – extremely impressive & progressive offering of intelligent, well-done & entertaining films about subjects we should all know more about”!
“My family and I have been volunteering for several years – hosting filmmakers and helping in various capacities. We simply LOVE the film festival. Favorite event of the year. We wouldn’t miss it.”
Sweetening the Deal with Volunteer Perks
We value your time and commitment to volunteer and are pleased to sweeten the deal and say thanks. This year, earn festival tickets, or a full festival pass if you volunteer 18 or more hours.
To express our gratitude, we are throwing a Volunteer Appreciation Kick-off Party on January 14. All volunteers are invited to enjoy music and drinks, pick up pre-selected film festival tickets, and mix and mingle with the stellar 2016 Wild & Scenic volunteer team.
While on duty during the festival, volunteers will have access to the Volunteer Lounge where they may grab snacks to refuel and pull up a chair for respite.
Free yoga is also offered to all festival pass holders and this includes volunteers! Enjoy free yoga at the Golden Mandala Collective, 417 Broad St. Classes will be offered 9:00am-8:00pm Saturday and Sunday.
Myriad Possibilities to Participate
You choose your level of involvement and what you do. Whether you set-up chairs, check passes at the venues, operate the tech equipment, or lead people to their seats in the dark, there are a multitude of ways to get involved in the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. Each volunteer is highly valued and plays an integral role in making this inspiring community event possible.
