Volunteers are the lifeblood of SJFF and we couldn’t do it without your help! SJFF has a variety of volunteer positions available during the festival and year-round, including: office administrative support, special event help, festival venue ushers, pass checkers, ballot counters, setup, etc.
How Do I Sign Up?
Please email us to be added to our volunteer database and email list. Please provide contact information, including email and phone, your availability, and if there is a particular volunteer job/position/date you are interested in. If you are available to help in the office, feel free to call director Pamela Lavitt directly at 206-388-0832.
In the month leading up the festival, email the SJFF volunteer coordinator to sign up.
Benefits and Policies
Vouchers: During the festival, for every 1 ½ to 2 hour shift, you will receive a single admission volunteer voucher that can be exchanged at the SJFF box office for a general admission ticket, good for most films. Vouchers are good for current festival only, and cannot be combined for higher-priced special event tickets.
Viewing films: Please do not sign up for a volunteer shift during a film you wish to see. Most shifts begin an hour prior to showtime and end a half-hour to an hour into the film. If able, we will release volunteers but it should neither be expected nor is it guaranteed.
