The Hamptons International Film Festival could not happen without the energy and hard work provided by our volunteers! Please complete this application form to join our team of motivated, hardworking, committed and reliable volunteers for HIFF 2018.

HIFF accepts volunteers who are high school-age and up, and we can sign off on community service hours for high school students.

We are also seeking highly reliable volunteers with office skills at the HIFF Office, and volunteers over the age of 21 for special events assignments.

  • Volunteers will work together ushering, collecting tickets and assisting where needed, in order to make the Festival run smoothly.
  • After their shifts, volunteers will receive vouchers* from their venue manager to see films. Vouchers are not tickets, and must be redeemed for tickets to movies at the box offices.
  • Prior to the Festival, there will be a mandatory orientation. More information to come.

Once you apply, our Volunteer Manager will be in touch later this summer.

We hope to see you at HIFF 2018! In the meantime, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest news all year long.
