About

Queens World Film Festival is seeking volunteers to help with set-up, break down, ushering, greeting, street teams, and outreach both before and during the festival (March 15th-25th). 177 films will be screened throughout Queens at the Museum of the Moving Image and the Zukor Theatre (near Kaufman Astoria Studios).

QWFF is a film festival that is dedicated to screening challenging films from around the world and around the corner. A thriving Youth Initiative, public screenings in alternative spaces, we build community by supporting filmmakers and film lovers.

This is a great way to see how a festival is run, interact with industry members, and gain experience within the film festival world.
