Program First Look & Volunteer Sign Up
Wednesday, July 29th in the Pearl District

Find out what about the program and sign up for shifts before anyone else!

Here comes #PDXFF15 — we’re planning to make 2015 bigger, better, more fun, and more organized. Last year we had over 300 volunteers that made the festival a success. So put your hat in for this year’s festival. We’ll have over 5 different flavors and toppings and three different types of beers.

Benefits to volunteers include:

– free passes to screenings
– free entrance to parties and networking events
– free t-shirt 
– great networking for professional or aspiring filmmakers 
– new friendships
– resume and portfolio building

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.
