What kind of work is available during the festival?
Ticketing and Badge Check-in
Volunteers will sell badges and individual movie tickets to people who come in the door. Volunteers will also check in those who have pre-purchased tickets and badges.
Volunteers will be needed to give information to Festival Attendees ranging from general information about Oxford, to the Festival itself and its program.
Volunteers will be selling both OFF merchandise and Film-Makers merchandise at 2 separate tables. OFF merchandise will be sold via computer and will include cash, check, and credit card transactions while Film-Makers merchandise will be cash/check only.
Volunteers will be responsible for monitoring the VIP Tent to make sure that only filmmakers, VIP guests, and OFF staff use the room. Volunteers will also need to work with the Hospitality Director for any food/drink needs and keep up with trash as needed. The volunteer in this area will sit in a chair outside the green room to check credentials (badges).
Ushers will stand outside the doors to the theaters and hand out audience ballots, do head-counts, and answer any questions that attendees may have.
Screen Managers are the direct communication from the theater to the booth upstairs. Volunteers will be asked to sit in a specific place and keep in communication with the booth for any problems that may occur with the picture or sound.
Q and A
Working with the Q and A staff and the Volunteer Coordinator for screens, these volunteers will run the Filmmakers / actor Q and A’s after the showing of their movie.
Volunteers will support the panel coordinator in setting up for panels, including anything from setting up microphones to making photocopies. This job may include some pre-festival duties as well.
Volunteers will help with the setting up, catering and serving, and the cleanup of parties. This involves an array of duties from carrying boxes, setting up tables and chairs, decorating, picking up food from sponsors or designated providers, serving or replenishing of areas, to taking out trash when the party is over. This area is usually LATE NIGHT.
