Volunteer for the 20th Annual Maryland Film Festival!



The 2018 Maryland Film Festival will take place May 2nd – 6th at the SNF Parkway Theatre and MICA campus venues, and 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 Tellers, Friends of the Festival Support, Filmmaker/VIP Lounge Staff, Theater Ushers, and more! You will be our front line ambassador, greeting guests from around the world!
MDFF STREET TEAM: Join the MDFF Street Team and help us distribute posters and postcards in your neighborhood!  To join, fill out a New or Returning Volunteer Application, and then once materials are ready, stop by the MDFF office located at 34 E. 25th Street Baltimore, MD 21218 anytime Monday-Friday from 10am to 6pm to pick up materials. Street Team volunteers will receive one screening voucher for materials placed in 20 locations.
REQUIREMENTS: Must enjoy serving the public, and must be committed to fulfilling assigned shifts.  All new volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation, either Saturday April 21st or Saturday April 28th from 10:30am-12:00pm at the SNF Parkway Theatre.
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 festival screening or regular-priced Parkway screening post-festival, 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 2018.
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!
