Volunteering with ReFrame

The ReFrame Film Festival has an amazing group of volunteers that are crucial to the smooth operation of the festival. There are three types of ReFrame volunteers: Festival Volunteers, Collective Members, and Board Members. Each role requires different levels of commitment (described below), but what they all have in common is:

Festival volunteers

Festival Volunteers provide important on-the-ground support for events before and during the festival weekend. We ask for a commitment of at least two (2) four-hour shifts from Festival Volunteers, and that you attend a pre-festival training session.

Festival Volunteers help out with things like:

  • Ushering guests to their seats
  • Selling tickets/checking passes
  • Setting up/tearing down event spaces
