VTIFF is primarily a volunteer-run organization. This is one of the reasons we can afford to bring to Vermont films of artistic, cultural and social value.
The volunteer effort is not limited to the 10 days of the festival itself - we need you to distribute posters, program guides, be present in other screenings we put on throughout the year and to be available for helping us promote the festival well in advance.
The rewards for volunteering are not financial. You do get a free pass to watch any films not on your shifts, and you might get voted as Best Festival Volunteer. But the main reward is the knowledge that you were an essential element in bringing to the area a major event that reflects the visions and hopes of people from around the world expressed through film. If you can commit, are responsible, and would like to be part of the VTIFF family - we'd love to hear from you.
We also encourage you to be part of Reward Volunteers - a win-win opportunity: the more volunteers hours you log, the more chances you have to win prizes and the more chances VTIFF has to win money!! All you need to do is download the free iPhone app or a web widget and type in Vermont International Film Festival. Then you can start logging your hours.
Please join and show the world the pleasures and benefits of volunteering.
