The Miami Film Festival is just around the corner, from March 6 – 15. Featuring a wide array of U.S. and international features, it’s one of the marquee events on the Miami Film calendar.
Numerous volunteer opportunities are available with the festival. No experience needed for these volunteer positions, just a love of film, of events, and of Miami! You will attend a volunteer orientation at the Tower Theater on Saturday, Feb. 29 from 11AM – 1 PM, and can sign up for volunteer shifts at several theaters partnering with the festival (we’re particular to the Silverspot downtown for this). This is an easy way to learn how a festival works from the inside and to become involved in the Miami film scene. You’ll have a chance to meet filmmakers, screenwriters, producers, and talent from around the world.
Perks include a free festival t-shirt and a ticket voucher to the festival for every shift worked.
