The 17th Annual Sonoma International Film Festival is holding a casting call – for volunteers. The ambitious event, April 2-6, relies on the help of several hundred volunteers to greet visitors, work the parties and screenings, provide hospitality for filmmakers, and help with pre-festival production.
Volunteers from previous years have raved about the experience of being amongst the festival’s inner circle, and the lasting friendships that they forged, according to the festival’s Ginny Krieger. “Volunteering is a unique opportunity to meet new people, contribute to the making of an iconic film festival and make special memories in the process,” she said
In addition to these benefits, volunteers are rewarded for their work with tickets to films, a souvenir T-shirt and invitation to post-festival Volunteer Party.
Volunteers can sign up online at: http://www.sonomafilmfest.org/volunteers and choose their availability for different dates and areas of service. “We are very grateful to the members of the community who make this celebration of film, food and wine possible every year,” Krieger.
