QUESTIONS & ANSWERS


What is a film festival?

Film festivals are events where dozens of films, which include shorts, documentaries, and full-length features in many genres, are screened in a city or region over a period of a few days. The Toronto International Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival and the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival are some of the many well-known festival. Guests enjoy the variety of films and related entertainment, and producers, directors, cast and crew of these films often attend festivals in order to better network.


As a volunteer, what would I be doing?

Good question. Volunteers could be expected to help at our ticket box office, greet incoming attendees, cater to industry professionals, or supervise our film venues in Lancaster City. Volunteer roles offer the ability for great experience, while also catering to the most outgoing or reserved individuals. Shifts run 3-6 hours or longer depending on the responsibility level.
