Volunteer for the 21st Annual Maryland Film Festival!

Do you love the Maryland Film Festival?  Are you interested in giving your time to help out with MdFF 2019 in exchange for amazing perks?  If so, we want you!

The 2019 Maryland Film Festival will take place May 8th-12th at the SNF Parkway, along with MICA campus venues.  This year, we will need more volunteers than ever to support filmmakers as well as the diverse, eclectic community of film lovers in Baltimore and throughout Maryland that attend our festival.

Many volunteer opportunities are available: Box Office, Tent Village, Friends of the Festival, Filmmaker/VIP Lounge, Theater Ushers, and more! You will be our front line ambassador, greeting guests from around the world!


REQUIREMENTS: Must enjoy serving the public, and must be committed to fulfilling assigned shifts.  All new volunteers must attend one of the following volunteer orientations at the Parkway (5 W. North Avenue):

April 27th from 10:30am-12:00pm


May 4th from 10:30am-12:00pm


AGE REQUIREMENTS: Volunteers under the age of 18 can apply to help out at the festival, but may be excluded from certain positions and must submit a permission form signed by a parent or guardian before volunteering. Volunteers under the age of 18 who wish to apply must be at least 16 years old to participate.


BENEFITS TO VOLUNTEERS:  In appreciation for your support, you will receive a limited edition t-shirt and, for each four (4) hour shift worked, earn one voucher that can be used toward a regular priced screening or $5 toward festival merchandise. Water and light snacks will be also available. Volunteers are invited to a free “volunteers only” film screening held shortly after the festival of one of the most popular films of MdFF 2019.


SPREAD THE WORD: Please help us to recruit other committed volunteers. Invite your friends and family, co-workers, fellow students, church members, and others! We can’t have too many volunteers!


HOW TO VOLUNTEER: Volunteers will need to fill out a form to apply to become a volunteer (see below).  The deadline to submit your volunteer application is April 15th.
