Volunteer Meetings and Information

We understand that your lives are busy, and March can be full of madness. However, attendance at one of the Initial Volunteer Orientations is required for all First and Second Year volunteers. If this is your third year or longer volunteering for the Festival, you will receive the Orientation Packet by email. Please read it carefully, paying special attention to new procedures and policies.


ALL Festival volunteers are required to attend at least one Venue Orientation


1) Initial Volunteer Orientation - Required for all First and Second Year Volunteers

The first Orientation will serve as an introduction to the 2018 Wisconsin Film Festival. You will learn about our volunteer tasks and teams, and how to sign up for shifts on Shiftboard. New procedures and policies will be outlined, and staff members will answer questions and assist those who may have trouble registering with Shiftboard.
