Help Create the Immigration Film Fest
Volunteers create, organize and produce the Immigration Film Festival. Tasks run the gamut–here are a few ideas of how you might get involved:
Are you good at networking? Do you have nonprofit or other fundraising experience? If so, join our team to get started working with prospective sponsors.
Do you have experience raising funds with Indiegogo or Kickstarter? We could use you.
Do you like to plan and attend events? We could use your abilities to help make sure our film events run smoothly.
Welcoming and hosting Filmmakers
Do you have a car or an extra room? Volunteers welcome filmmakers and actors who are coming from out of town and may provide them with accommodations.
Marketing and Promotion
Do you have writing and editing skills? To reach filmmakers and filmgoers we need people who can interview and write articles, prepare press releases, draft email announcements and design posters.
If you are interested in helping with any of these requests, please email us at [email protected]. Please include details of your particular interests and expertise and the tasks you could handle.
Our team will be grateful for your interest and support.
