Middle Coast volunteers are crucial to the operation of the festival. Volunteers help market the festival around town (putting up flyers, chalking sidewalks, helping with word of mouth), assist audience members at venues, serve as an ambassador to Chicago for out of town filmmakers, and help administer the panel discussions.

As a volunteer you receive a free festival badge to watch films when they are not working a shift. You also have access to all of the filmmakers attending– an awesome opportunity for beginning and student filmmakers or anyone wanting to learn about the film industry.

If you’re interested, give us a holler! We’ll get back to you shortly.
