As a nonprofit committed to screening films based on their creative, artistic, and social merits, Film Streams depends on the support of many, including the amazing volunteers who take tickets, seat patrons, help distribute materials, and support events. We’re a small staff, so our volunteers contribute tremendously to the success of our organization.
In addition to the satisfaction of helping us achieve our mission, Volunteers get one free pass* to any regular film screening (or may allocate the hours toward a service/school requirement) per shift. Additionally, Volunteers enjoy free popcorn, fountain drinks, coffee or hot tea during their shift.
Ticket-takers are needed on a daily basis to ensure smooth traffic flow into the theaters.
Seaters help ensure all patrons have the best experience they possibly can. After the Ticket Taker has received a patrons tickets, a Seater helps guide all patrons to their seats. The seater position is only scheduled when we expect a well-attended event or sold out show.
Throughout the year, we showcase a variety of private and public screenings (on and off site). We need assistance to execute these programs and ensure quality patron service. Special Events include: Met Live in HD, Daytime Education Program, Student Night, Community Outreach Tables, and Feature (our fundraising gala).
Marketing Materials Distribution opportunities are sent on as-needed basis to ensure Film Streams promotional and marketing materials are distributed throughout the community. A list of locations will be provided to you and this can be done around your schedule. A staff member will provide the volunteer with any specific information regarding the materials when they are handed over. Volunteer provides their own transportation. For more information, email Crystal@FilmStreams.org.
*Marketing and Outreach volunteers receive TWO free movie passes.
