Volunteers Make It Happen!
The entirety of BIFF’s success depends on the hard work of our volunteers. Work that can often be boring, chaotic and unsung, with magnificent highs followed by unforeseeable calamities. But, you’ll emerge from this experience with some great new stories to tell, great new friendships, and a lot of incredible memories.
Volunteer applications for BIFF 2015 (March 5-8) are now being accepted. We use Shiftboard to help us organize everyone. If you haven’t signed up, now’s a good time! Just click the button below and you’ll join our volunteer group. We’ll start sign up for shifts in February. Thanks for the help!
We ask our volunteers to commit to eight hours over the course of the Festival. Please have a great attitude, love films, love Boulder, and be willing to have fun while working hard. In exchange you’ll get an exclusive BIFF 2015 t-shirt, two film vouchers, a lot of new friends and the time of your life at the BAD Party.
Help us plan BIFF 2015!
We currently have volunteer opportunities to work with us as a member of the BIFF Core Staff in preparation for the Festival! Please review the list of volunteer positions below. If you see something you are interested in and think you may be qualified for, please contact BIFF Executive Producer, Kevin Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Box Office Personnel: A member of the BIFF staff that is primarily responsible for managing ticket sales and distribution at one of our viewing locations. Some accounting or other management experience is preferred.
Stage Managers: Volunteers in this position keep the Festival moving on time and coordinate all aspects of what our attendees will experience. You would interact with our technical personnel, speakers, filmmakers, and venue management. This is a skill position at the Festival and theater or technical background is required.
Social Media and/or Digital Journalists: During the Festival (March 5 – 8, 2015) we put together a small team of volunteer journalists that post Festival events and pics on our blog and social media channels. Whether it’s Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or the BIFF Blog itself, there is enough to cover to keep everyone busy! You’d be “on assignment from BIFF” so writing samples are a must for these positions.
