2019 Volunteer Festival Staff Opportunities

Come join us as a member of the BIFF 2019 Festival Staff! The following volunteer opportunities are available if you have some time between now and March 3rd. Please take a look at the list of positions below. If you think you may be qualified or want to learn more, please contact our Executive Producer at kevin@biff1.com. 

Current Positions

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 of volunteers who distribute our program books along the Front Range.

This person is responsible for the planning and implementation of BIFF merchandise sales and stations during the Festival. Our Merchandising Manager helps determine quantities and sizes for t-shirt and hats, researches vendors, works with our graphic designer on specifications, and with the help of volunteers, sets up and organizes the merchandise sales points at BIFF!

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

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 an event production background. If you’re interested in being an Associate Event Producer, this is a great place to learn about event production.

Volunteers in Community Marketing are some of the savviest 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.

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 and wi-fi setups running in various locations around the Festival. 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.

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, and lighting. And you’ll be communicating directly with BIFF moderators and guests. If you’re interested in being an Assistant Stage Manager, this is a great place to learn about stage management.

If you have production experience, BIFF needs your help running day-to-day operations during the Festival. Production Managers at BIFF are responsible for creating the overall schedule for the Festival and managing the show office as well as a group of production assistants during the Festival itself. If you’re interested in being a Production Assistant, this is a great place to learn about event production.

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!
