Join the Fun!

Join the Nevada City Film Festival family and meet new people, gain new skills, and help support independent film.

Every year Nevada City Film Festival relies on the generosity of a small handful of dedicated volunteers to help create an exciting and one-of-a-kind experience.

Volunteer opportunities include box office, theatre ushers, concessions, setup and clean up, hospitality, postering, transportation and hosting of filmmakers.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, ranging from students to retirees, the common denominator is we all love film, arts and culture, and our community.

There are many benefits of becoming a volunteer but the most significant is together we are creating something much larger than any one of us.

A three-hour shift nets you two free tickets to a program of your choice. Volunteer for 3 shifts and receive a free membership. Email to sign up for the 2018 Festival.
