During the festival, you will be stationed at the Guest Check In table, where you will create an immediate sense of belonging for filmmakers as they arrive, showcase your skill in providing anticipatory customer service, and share your lifelong appreciation for the beauty of Marin County with those visiting us for the first time.

This is a seasonal, unpaid volunteer position that will include pre-festival shifts assembling welcome packets and 4-hour shifts during the festival, October 6-16.
