Volunteer Application

Please fill out the form below to apply to volunteer at True/False 2014. After you've submitted your application, we'll review it and let you know if there is a position available. Thank you for your interest in helping the festival.

NOTE: Returning volunteers in good standing will be given placement priority over new volunteers, so if you are a NEW volunteer (that is, this will be your first time volunteering for a T/F event), keep in mind that you may not get your first or even your second choice team. RETURNING volunteers: to ensure that you get the placement you want, sign up by early December; you will receive your placement by the end of the year. Volunteers who sign up by the end of December will receive their placements in January. ALL VOLUNTEERS who sign up later than December will be placed by February 15 and are much less likely to receive their top choices. We will do our best to accommodate everyone's top choices but may not be able to in all cases!

Theater Operations

Be part of several teams that inhabit festival theaters during the weekend (Feb.27-March 2nd) and keep them humming right along. You'll take tickets, manage lines, count seats, usher people into the theater, and interact with a public eager to see the best docs around. This is where the action is, with venues abuzz with filmmakers, musicians, and Columbia's finest passholders and attendees. Think you have what it takes to be a mobile, flamboyant information station? Want to wrangle patrons in the Q? Mention below you have what it takes to be a Queen!
