The Philadelphia Film Festival (Oct 16 to Oct 26)

Posted August 21st, 2014 at 10:47 am.


The Philadelphia Film Festival (Oct 16 to Oct 26) is an international film festival that welcomes filmmakers and film-lovers from around the world to venues throughout the city for films and special events. Last year, we screened Academy Award nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown , crowd-pleaser About Time , the groundbreaking Blue is the Warmest Color , and dozens of more films from around the corner and across the globe.

You can see awesome films like these for FREE! All you have to do is volunteer.

To ensure that the festival runs as smoothly as possible, we need the help of dedicated volunteers — volunteers like YOU — to work as ushers, box office personnel, and more. Volunteering is an excellent way to meet cinephiles like yourself, gain exposure in the Philadelphia Film Community, and see some amazing movies you may not be able to see anywhere else!

Positions Include:

*Theater Operations // Greeters & Ushers
*Box Office
*Special Events

These are all unpaid volunteer positions. However, volunteers will receive a voucher at the end of each shift. This voucher can be redeemed for films during the Festival and throughout the year.

SIGN UP NOW! Just visit . Click on the tab labeled “Sign Up to Volunteer! – Click Here” to fill out the Volunteer Sign Up Form.

You will also be asked to sign up for a Volunteer Training Session. All volunteers are encouraged to attend training. If you are interested in volunteering as an usher or greeter, it never hurts to get a refresher! Training is required for volunteers interested in Box Office or Membership, even if you volunteered last year. All Volunteer Training Sessions will be held at the PFS Roxy Theater (2023 Sansom Street).

Training Sessions are scheduled for the following dates:

Saturday, September 27 (9:30am-11:30am)

Sunday, September 28 (9:30am-11:30am)

Saturday, October 4 (9:30am-11:30am)

Sunday, October 5 (9:30am-11:30am)

Saturday October 11 (9:30am-11:30am)

Please contact or 267 239 2941 with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you!
