Volunteer For BIFF 2018

2018 Volunteer Festival Staff Opportunities

Starting now we have the following volunteer opportunities to work with us as a member of the BIFF 2018 Festival Staff.  If you have some time between now and February 25, please take a look at the list of volunteer staff positions below. If you’re interested and think you may be qualified for one of these positions, please contact our executive producer at Kevin@biff1.com. 

Venue Managers

During the Festival, our team of amazing venue managers are the glue that holds everything together. They are in charge of managing each our film venues, our audience, and our volunteers staff, some of the brightest, fun people in Boulder. They make sure the Festival is running smoothly, communicating with all other groups working the venue, including stage managers, box office managers, building managers, line managers and others. Folks in this position are great communicators and have usually had some level of management experience.

Technical Producer

BIFF is looking for someone with a general technical background to help with a couple of projects during the Festival.  We’re going to have HD monitors running in various locations around the festival, Wi-Fi setups in a few locations and theatrical lighting installations.  This person would help make the plan and lead the team of volunteers responsible for installing and maintaining the BIFF technical infrastructure during the Festival.

Longmont Marketing Liaison

BIFF wants to take over Longmont!  We need some help with marketing the Festival to the unique and thriving arts culture in Longmont.  We’ve had some great help putting together a plan, now we need a savvy marketer to help us execute it!

Event Producers

Volunteers in this group are each responsible for producing one or two of our very special parties during the Festival.  You’ll be working independently for the most part, so It’s a good idea to have a production background if you’re going to be an event producer at BIFF.  If you’re interested in being an associate producer here, this is a great place to learn about event production.

Stage Managers

BIFF is seeking experienced stage managers to help us keep our film programs informative, efficient and running on schedule.  This is a volunteer position that requires a good deal of technical expertise, theatrical or production experience, and great people skills.  You’ll be leading a team that includes video projection, sound, lighting, and communicating directly with BIFF moderators and guests.

If any of these volunteer opportunities tickles your fancy, please contact our executive producer at kevin@biff1.com.

 

Thank you! We couldn’t do it without you!
