The Athena Film Festival at Barnard College is closed for volunteer sign ups please check back in fall.
We need your help to make the Athena Film Festival a success. Volunteers are needed as ushers, greeters, venue managers, and general support. Here are some details about volunteering:
When will I need to be available?
The Festival begins on Thursday night, Feb. 18, 2021 and ends on Sunday evening, Feb. 21, 2021. You can sign up for certain shifts during the festival that work with your schedule. There will be opportunities to work on Thursday evening and during the day and evening on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You are not required to be available for the entirety of the festival.
How will I know what to do?
There will be volunteer training sessions before the festival where you will learn your assignment and meet other volunteers.
This is a great opportunity to meet fellow film enthusiasts and network with local industry professionals. Any questions? Send us an email.
