Each SLIFF volunteer receives a commemorative festival T-shirt and a complimentary ticket voucher for each shift worked. Volunteer duties include, but are not limited to, ticket taking, ushering, distributing programs, handing out and collecting ballots, and general housekeeping after films let out. When selecting your shifts, we do not suggest volunteering to see a specific film. We cannot guarantee that volunteers will be able to sit in on all films, though we do try to accommodate as much as possible. Click the button to the right to volunteer.
