Are you interested in being part of one of the largest film events on the East Coast?

Join us as we prepare the 2024 Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival. We are looking for a team of dedicated, film-loving volunteers to help us in a number of key roles as we organize the 27th edition of RIIFF. We are New England’s largest film festival, the region's only Oscar-qualifying festival in three categories, and one of the top independent film festivals in the U.S. With films and filmmakers coming from over 65 countries annually, RIIFF serves as an important meeting ground for the international film community. In recent years, we've had several films receive nominations for the Oscars, with one film going on to win the coveted award. So, this might very well be your chance to meet the next big star! Our volunteers are crucial to the success of our festival every year, and they serve as ambassadors of the festival to our visiting filmmakers and audience.

Festival volunteer roles include: managing festival venues, working the box office, assisting with panels, events, workshops, and screenings, ushering guests, facilitating with technology, or helping with web design or film production.

Let us know where your talents lie and what you’re interested in. We look forward to you joining our team!

About Flickers: Rhode Island International Film Festival

Mission Statement

Flickers offers an artistic exchange as well as opportunities for the global creative community that are not available in the established entertainment industry. It is designed to foster contact among film directors, artists, producers, distributors, backers and audiences. Filmmakers will have an opportunity to share new film product, test-market films in development, and share the film-making process with industry peers, students, and the general public. The Festival's goal is to recognize achievement and innovation in a variety of filmmaking and storytelling disciplines while providing an opportunity to secure wider distribution.


The Festival has become a leading juried competition showcase for international independent filmmakers and their work. In 2011 , Flickers screened 204 cinematic works in six days to large and appreciative crowds.

The films screened came from 60 countries, and 34 states in the United States. There were 18 World Premieres and 21 US/North American Premieres. A total of 21 Narrative Features, 45 Feature Documentaries and 141 Short Films were screened. Following months of adjudication and review, Festival films were selected from over 4,537 submissions.

What sets Flickers apart is that the Festival is one of only a handful of broadly focused, independent festivals in New England accepting works of any type (dramatic, documentary, experimental, animation), on any subject matter, and in any genre. In 2002, Flickers was notified by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) that it had elected to recognize the Rhode Island International Film Festival a s a qualifying festival for the Short Films category for the Annual Academy Awards. With more than 7,000 film festivals worldwide, only 65 have this recognition.
