Get psyched - WE’RE BACK! 

The Philadelphia Film Festival is just 3 months away! 

 

Every October, the Philadelphia Film Society hosts the Philadelphia Film Festival - our marquee event. At the center of the Film Society’s mission, the Philadelphia Film Festival brings the best in independent and international film to audiences in Philadelphia. PFF gathers filmmakers, industry professionals, and cinephiles from around the world for 11-days, celebrating film as an artform that can not only entertain, but also inspire, educate, and create community.

 

2020 was a peculiar year to say the least, but the Film Society’s dedication to bringing diverse and acclaimed titles to Philadelphia audiences never wavered, as PFS pivoted to virtual programming, presenting to our patrons a new way of film screening that kept everyone safe at home (or in their cars!). This October, we are very excited to be returning to our in-person format, just in time to celebrate an important milestone: 30 years of proudly presenting our film community with a veritable smörgåsbord of cinematic delicacies - running the gamut from awards contenders and indie darlings to thought-provoking documentaries and cult favorites, all before they’ve hit theaters! 

 

Here’s the catch: without our amazing volunteers, none of this is possible! From checking badges and scanning tickets, to counting ballots and greeting guests, festival volunteers are a necessity. They are the key to our events running smoothly. Every year, PFF attracts hundreds of volunteers who leave our theaters and events with new friendships and fond memories that last for years to come. Whether you sign up because you’re a film buff or because you’re looking for a way to help out in the community, volunteering for PFF is the perfect way to get involved, meet new people, and experience acclaimed cinema all at once—and we’d love to have you as a part of our team!

 

The Philadelphia Film Festival has a range of volunteer positions available, including Venue Operations (Ushers & Greeters), Membership, and Special Events. After each shift, volunteers receive a voucher that can be redeemed for a movie ticket during the film festival or throughout the year at a PFS First Run screening. PLUS, volunteers who work 6+ shifts get a FREE Gaffer Level Membership for the Festival experience all year long! Venue managers may also sign off on student volunteer logs for school requirements, when applicable. Other recently added Volunteer perks include special promo codes for free tickets to select films during the Festival, as well as a Volunteer Thank-You event following the end of the Festival!
