With the official start of summer just a few weeks away, the unofficial summer kickoff has arrived with Memorial Day around the corner and the start of festival season. Here at Shiftboard we are lucky to work with some of the best festivals around the world to schedule thousands of volunteers. The 36th annual Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) got under way on May 20th, with a spectacular opening night and Seattle’s best and brightest in attendance. Almost 5,000 volunteers have signed up to work on SIFF’s Shiftboard website, and the pay off will be well worth it as the festival continues to grow successfully from year to year. As far as scheduling software goes, Shiftboard has proven to be as diverse in its uses as its users. From the San Francisco International Jewish Film Festival, to the Devon County Fair in Pennsylvania, to the FIFA International Fan Fest in Sydney, Australia. We have a lot going on here at Shiftboard, and I look forward to posting more events as they happen!
