Volunteer For BIFF 2018

Volunteer Registration is Open!

If you’re interested in helping with BIFF 2018 there are two ways you can get involved. If you have some time right now, you can become a member of our Festival Staff and start helping right away. (Take a look below for current opportunities).  The second way is to volunteer for a shift or two at the Festival itself, February 22 – 25, 2018, as a part of our Festival Crew. You will receive two film vouchers for 8 hours of work. 

To register for either of these, please press the Shiftboard button above and create an account (or log in to the account you already have).
