Application Deadline: December 9, 2016

The 14th Annual Hollywood Black Film Festival (HBFF) is now accepting applications for volunteers. Exciting volunteer opportunities await you with  the 2017 festival, which takes place February 22 – 26, 2017 in Marina Del Rey, CA. HBFF is nothing, if not for the efforts of all the volunteers that come together to make it happen.

Volunteering with HBFF is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meet other dedicated volunteers and interact with HBFF staff, filmmakers, sponsors, and the movie-going public. You also have the opportunity to learn about the film industry.  We can promise you an invigorating experience with an opportunity to learn, grow, and be inspired by the event and its atmosphere. Being an HBFF volunteer has proved to be a prized opportunity year after year.

Each year HBFF relies on the help from close to 100 volunteers, in every department. Whether you have years of experience or are just joining us for the first time, we welcome your help and support. Volunteers are needed before and during the 5-day Festival for a variety of positions, weekdays and weekends, so you’re sure to find a slot that fits your schedule and interests.

Volunteers are needed to perform a variety of duties, including:


* Pre-festival work (invitation stuffing, preparing/arranging materials)

* Greeting and registration of filmmakers and special guests

* Distribution and tabulation of audience ballots

* Distribution of festival brochure and feedback forms

* Directing guests between festival venues


Once you have logged some hours of volunteer work, you will have free access to Festival events during your off-duty hours.

It is mandatory that all volunteers attend an orientation/training session.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years old to participate. If you would like to volunteer with HBFF 2017 or at any of HBFF’s many year-round programs, please fill out our online volunteer application below. All volunteers are required to attend their assigned volunteer orientation session to be held in February prior to the festival (more details will be e-mailed to selected individuals).

The Hollywood Black Film Festival reserves the right to accept or reject any volunteer application.

Unfortunately the festival will not have the opportunity to respond to every volunteer application. Eligible applicants will be contacted via phone or e-mail.

Thank you again for your interest in volunteering for the 2017 Hollywood Black Film Festival.[/fusion_text][/one_full]
