How Can I Help?

We need volunteers in the following positions!

Before The Festival

Film Reviewers Needed! Do you like film? Can you articulate your opinion in a few carefully crafted sentences? Do you respect the opinions of others? Do you have the passion to watch and evaluate 30 to 40 movies, or read 10 to 20 scripts? If so, then you will make an incredible reviewer. This year, the New York City Independent Film Festival expects a record number of films to be entered! In order to process these entries, we require the integrity and dedication of our volunteer screeners. For more information email us at info@nycindieff.com.
