Join the All-Star team of Philadelphia Film Society Volunteers TODAY!
Here are some of the ways to be involved with PFS:
Each October, the Philadelphia Film Society hosts the Philadelphia Film Festival, which gathers more than 25,000 dedicated film lovers and scores of talented filmmakers for 11 exceptional days.
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 new 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.
