Volunteer Opportunities

As a volunteer-based, nonprofit organization, we depend on the incredible generosity and talents of our amazing volunteers, who will run all areas of the festival. We hope you’ll join our team of hard-working, fun-loving, problem-solving movie lovers who are committed to creating an extraordinary event for our community and by helping festival patrons and guests have the best film-going experience possible.

Sustainability Manager
The sustainability team helps keep BIFF a green film festival! The Manager of Sustainability provides project management, coordination, and continual education to further our continual quest to become a zero waste event. This Manager also provide training to BIFF volunteers and helps to increase attendee and sponsor engagement around our sustainability initiatives.
Venue Manager
During the Festival, our team of amazing venue managers are the glue that holds everything together. They are in charge of managing each of our film venues, our audience, and our volunteer staff. They make sure the Festival is running smoothly, communicating with all other groups working the venue, including stage managers, box office managers, building managers, line managers and others. Folks in this position are great communicators and generally have some level of management experience.
Stage Manager
BIFF is seeking experienced stage managers to help us keep our film programs informative, efficient and running on schedule. This is a volunteer position that requires a good deal of technical expertise, theatrical or production experience, and great people skills. You’ll be leading a team that handles video projection, sound, lighting and communicating directly with BIFF moderators and guests.
Web Content Manager
BIFF is looking for a volunteer with great web/graphic design and writing skills to help make our website even more vibrant and interactive. You will collaborate with our principal designer and web team to constantly improve our most important communication tool. Familiarity with WordPress is helpful here.
