Become a Volunteer!


Want to work with a film festival that’s small enough for you to get real, hands-on experience, but large enough for you to network with and learn from several industry professionals? Our interns work with department heads to prep for various upcoming SPIFF events as well as for the festival itself. Please note while our internships are unpaid and part-time, we can offer letters of reference, documentation for credit and we are flexible with your school and work schedules.

We currently have a need in the following areas: • Social Media • Marketing/Publicity • Sponsorship Outreach • Programming • Volunteer & Community Outreach 


Volunteering with SPIFF provides an opportunity to put your talents to good use, learn new skills, and meet people who love film as much as you do. Our volunteers are present at every point of the festival and have a variety of assistant-level tasks to do:

  • Taking tickets at screenings and events
  • Registration
  • Hospitality at our filmmaker lounge
  • Proctor/monitor for our new art and music outdoor events
  • Administrative  in social media, publicity and outreach
  • Youth Film Intensive Program
  • Additional events throughout the year  

Most tasks require no prior experience; we’ll host Volunteer Orientation meetings in September and again in October just prior to the fest.  With a small staff of 3, SPIFF volunteers are the heartbeat!
