Applications for BIFF 2016 will open on October 31, 2015.  But we may need your help sooner if you have time!  Read below.

Help us plan BIFF 2016!

We currently have volunteer opportunities to work with us as a member of the BIFF 2016 Core Staff in preparation for the Festival. Please review the list of volunteer positions below. If you see something you are interested in and think you may be qualified for, please contact BIFF Executive Producer, Kevin Smith at

Web Designer: BIFF is looking for a volunteer with great web/graphic design skills to help make our website even more vibrant and interactive. You could help our principal designer and web team constantly improve our most important communication tool.  Familiarity with WordPress is handy here.

Program Distribution Manager:  The BIFF program book is the most comprehensive guide to the Festival available.  It’s also the principal signal to the community that the Festival is Coming Soon!  The person in this position will oversee a large group volunteers that distribute our program books along the Front Range.

Social Media and/or Digital Journalists: Help BIFF design and implement our efforts on the internet.  Whether it’s Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or the BIFF Blog itself, there is enough to cover to keep everyone busy!  You’d be “on assignment covering BIFF” so writing samples are a must for these positions.

Community Marketing Committee: Volunteers on this committee are some of the most savvy marketers in Boulder!  Join this group of industry professionals and help devise and execute communication plans for one of the best film programs in the country.

Volunteer Committee: Help us devise and execute programs for the over 400 members of the Boulder community that volunteer to work the Festival every year.  This committee is responsible for initiating and coordinating our many efforts on behalf our amazing volunteers in the Boulder community.  This will also involve helping folks register using our online system, so a certain comfort level with web databases will be helpful.

Production Coordinator:  Staging a city-wide Festival can be a lot of fun but to keep it that way, it requires a lot of thoughtful planning.  If you have some experience planning events, or would like to learn more about it, let us know, we have a great team you can be a part of for BIFF 2016.

Information Booth Coordinator: The Information Booth and roving staff is the focal point for answering questions about films and events during BIFF 2016.  The info booth coordinator is a member of the BIFF 2016 Customer Experience team.  The person in this position also helps organize, schedule, and train volunteers and concierge staff for BIFF 2016.
