Become a Volunteer
A year of preparation
for 5 extraordinary days
We are predominately a volunteer-driven organization, which is why your help is so valuable to us. Join the CIFF team and become part of an amazing event that is helping to enrich the culture and community of Charleston–and have a great time doing it!
How you can help
Sales and distribution of tickets, including collecting cash, running credit cards, and end-of-shift reporting. Will be familiar with blocks, venues, etc. in order to answer questions from patrons.
Coordinate detailed logistical needs for every aspect of the festival, from festival setup to breakdown (willingness to do a variety of tasks and occasionally get your hands dirty).
Assist in festival theatre setup and breakdown, film balloting, ushering, and being the welcoming face of the festival.
Put up posters, distribute tickets to hotels, and otherwise help market the festival leading up to and during the festival. VIP: Work closely with VIP pass holders during the festival to ensure they have an incredible festival experience (for friendly people who enjoy hospitality and providing superior customer service).
Provide concierge services for filmmakers and their guests to ensure a superior festival experience (for friendly people very knowledgeable about Charleston hospitality with a passion for serving others).
