The third annual Sanford International Film Festival will be held this year from May 25th - 29th. The festival committee is looking for additional volunteers to help with the planning and coordination of the festival both ahead of time and during the event.

There will be an informational meeting and pizza party for prospective committee members and volunteers:

Thursday, March 31st
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Sanford-Springvale Chamber of Commerce

Here are some of the positions we need your help to fill:

SIFF Committee Members - offer feedback and ideas on the week-to-week work of the film festival, and to help accomplish film festival tasks both big and small. 

Set up & Tear Down Teams - Help prepare and clean up after single events like our Ice Cream Social at Shain’s Restaurant, and our Awards Ceremony at Nasson Little Theater.

Website Designers and Administrators - Keep our web presence looking nice and working correctly. One need not know code, cease the interfaces we use are pretty simple. This will become a daily need as we get closer to the festival.

Sponsorship Salespersons - Help secure the funds needed to print our custom trophies, cater our awards ceremony, print nice-looking programs and get some of the most talented people in the United States and the rest of the world to our festival.

Masters of Ceremony - Introduce films and filmmakers for their Question and Answer sessions, and to remind the audience members both where exits and bathrooms are, and rate films using the QR codes we’ll display throughout the festival.

Program Projectionists - Work behind the scenes to run the videos—in time and in order—from the computers.

Photographers - Take posed at candid photos at the red carpet awards ceremony, at film screenings, Q&As, meet & greets, workshops, farmers' market and other ancillary events. We need a surplus of photographers to help us capture all of the best moments, and to sell this festival—and our city—to the world.

Box Office Personnel - Scan tickets, count attendees, manage lines and make life easier for our audience.

House crews and Ushers - Help maintain the venues we’ve been granted for SIFF, and make the audience experience easy, fun, and 100% positive.
