Do you love the Maryland Film Festival? Do you want to take part in the festival's inaugural year in the Parkway? Are you interested in giving your time to help out with MDFF 2017 in exchange for amazing perks? If so, we want you!

The 2017 Maryland Film Festival will take place May 3rd-7th for the first time in the Parkway (the new permanent home of MdFF), along with MICA campus venues, and we will need more volunteers than ever to support filmmakers as well as the diverse, eclectic community of film lovers in Baltimore and throughout Maryland that attend our festival. Many volunteer opportunities are available: Box Office, Tent Village, Friends of the Festival, Filmmaker/VIP Lounge, Theater Ushers, and more! You will be our front line ambassador, greeting guests from around the world!

MDFF STREET TEAM: Join the MDFF Street Team and help us distribute posters and postcards in your neighborhood! To join, fill out a New or Returning Volunteer Application (below) then stop by the MDFF office located at 34 E. 25th Street Baltimore, MD 21218 anytime Monday-Friday from 10am to 6pm to pick up materials. Street Team volunteers will receive one screening voucher for materials placed in 20 locations.

REQUIREMENTS: Must enjoy serving the public, and must be committed to fulfilling assigned shifts. All new volunteers must attend one of the following volunteer orientations at the Parkway (5 W. North Avenue):

April 22nd from 10:30am-12:00pm
April 29th from 10:30am-12:00pm

AGE REQUIREMENTS: Volunteers under the age of 18 can apply to help out at the festival, but may be excluded from certain positions and must submit a permission form signed by a parent or guardian before volunteering. Volunteers under the age of 18 who wish to apply must be at least 16 years old to participate.

BENEFITS TO VOLUNTEERS: In appreciation for your support, you will receive a limited edition t-shirt and, for each four (4) hour shift worked, earn one voucher that can be used toward a regular priced screening, $5 toward festival merchandise. Water and light snacks will be also available. Volunteers are invited to a free "volunteers only" film screening, held shortly after the festival, of one of the most popular films of MDFF 2017.

SPREAD THE WORD: Please help us to recruit other committed volunteers. Invite your friends and family, co-workers, fellow students, church members, and others! We can't have too many volunteers!
