The Philadelphia Film Festival (October 20-30) is only a few months away!

PFF is a local tradition that brings the best of Sundance, Berlin, Toronto, and Cannes to Philly for 11 days of amazing international and independent film. PFF also welcomes filmmakers, industry professionals, and special guests to our city for screenings, panels, parties and special events.

None of this would be possible without our amazing volunteers! From scanning badges to selling tickets to driving guests, festival volunteers are essential to making sure that this event runs smoothly.

Every year, PFF attracts hundreds of volunteers who leave our theaters and events with lasting memories and friendships that grow for years to come. Volunteering for PFF is the perfect way to get involved in the community, meet new people, and experience acclaimed cinema all at once-and we’d love to have you as a part of our team!

The Philadelphia Film Festival has a range of volunteer positions available, including Venue Operations (Ushers & Greeters), Box Office, Hospitality & Guest Services, Membership, and Special Events. After each shift, volunteers receive a voucher that can be redeemed for a movie ticket during the film festival and throughout the year at the PFS.
