As a volunteer, you have a front-row seat to experience what goes on behind-the-scenes at North America's longest-running avant-garde and experimental film festival.
Volunteers must complete this Volunteer Application prior to signing up for shifts, so please start here!
We are still assessing our volunteer needs for the week of the festival. Once we have our schedule, shifts will be posted here on Volunteer Local. We will contact you once we have festival week shifts available so that you can sign up for convenient times for your schedule!
Leading up to the festival week, we will be hosting several volunteer orientations to explain the responsibilities and expectations for volunteers. Attending one of these orientations will be mandatory for volunteers prior to working the festival, so please plan accordingly.
Volunteers receive a 60th AAFF t-shirt, other AAFF goodies, and earn tickets/passes as follows:
3 hours -- 3 Main Auditorium Tickets
6 hours -- 6 Main Auditorium Tickets
12 hours -- 1 weekend pass
15+ hours -- 1 full festival pass which includes online access during festival week
* as we explore the functionality of our online festival system, we’ll determine how possible it is for us to also make online access available to hardworking volunteers
