Welcome! With the energy and creative spirit of nearly 1000 people working on more than 30 different teams, together we can make T/F 2019 a great fest!
Please complete the following application as accurately as possible. Because this application is designed to screen OUT candidates without enough time to work for a particular team, you should enter your time availability FIRST and with as much breadth as possible before selecting three team preferences. General volunteers work up to 20 hours and Juggernauts up to 40 hours. Some teams require candidates above a certain age (ie. event party workers, or chauffeurs), or with particular skills (ie. operating power tools or a sound board), so please answer all questions about your qualifications.
If you have never volunteered for the festival before – We’re grateful that you are willing to donate your time! Please take a few minutes to read a short introduction and some basic information to consider before filling out your application (click on the blue button above!).
If you are a returning volunteer – Thank you and welcome back! Your experience and hard work over the past decade-plus is one of the reasons that film lovers regard True/False as one of the most fun, inventive and community-oriented film festivals in the world. As a returning volunteer, please be sure to respond to queries about your past T/F experiences, and also indicate if you have been recruited for a specific team by noting the team name and the name of your team leader on the application.
ALL PROSPECTIVE VOLUNTEERS - Once you’ve completed and submitted this form, you will receive a message from T/F confirming receipt of your application. Once your application has been reviewed, we'll send you a confirmation of approval, or we may ask you to expand your time availability to qualify as a volunteer. Remember, you should apply early for the best chance at being placed on your choice of team.
Thanks for your time!
Cathy Gunther and Heather Gillich
