Portland Film Festival has always been a 100% volunteer-driven organization, and none of our programs would be possible without the support of generous, dedicated volunteers.

People give their time and talents, from our screening committee to our event planners and even those who help take photos or straighten chairs; our volunteers do it all for the love of film.

Many hands make light work: we’ve broken projects down into clearly defined, manageable tasks, so no one gets overloaded. Bring a pal! Whether you want to work before or during the festival, we can use your help.

Come out and join us. This will be an in-person event.

There are many opportunities to volunteer with us while staying in your own home. If you prefer to volunteer for virtual opportunities, contact us at

The Portland Film Festival established itself as one of Portland’s first indie film non-profits, founded in 2013 with Portland’s first movie meetup, the Portland Film Club. Its hundreds of screenings, events, education programs, and community partnerships provide a remarkable experience for our diverse audience to connect with filmmakers working across genres and forms.
