THIRD ACTion Film Festival Wants You!
To have a great time
To meet amazing people
To enjoy some fantastic movies
To be able to exclaim "I was a part of that!"
So, come join us in making the festival come to fruition!
We have fun volunteer positions for everyone (depending on your interests) and a snazzy volunteer t-shirt to show off to your family and friends! There will be other great things too but we gotta leave something as a surprise!
You will be working in a great venue - the Glenbow Museum and can volunteer for as little as 1 shift.
Peruse the events/shifts/positions below and then hop on the Festival Train by filling out our Volunteer Form, Volunteer Agreement and Waiver (yah, it sucks but the bureaucracy is a requirement) and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org!
