It’s A Volunteer Experience With All The Boring Parts Cut Out
“It feels like a week-long horror-geek summer camp reunion. There's no artifice, no pretense, no bullshit.” - Scott Weinberg, Cinematical
Fantastic Fest is looking for volunteers (18 years and older, please) for our 2015 festival. We need you to stand face to face with the celebs and the fans alike to make sure everyone has an Austin-Texas-Alamo-Drafthouse-good-time.
No other festival draws so many eclectic directors, writers, actors and genre film fanatics from across the globe, and mixes them all together with screenings, beer, karaoke, beer, BBQ, beer, trivia, beer, boxing and more beer! And you can help make it all happen.
And be able to attend one of the Volunteer Info Sessions:
Saturday Aug 15th - 10am - 11am
Sunday Aug 16th - 4pm - 5pm
Monday Aug 17th - 2pm - 3pm
The Info Session will last about an hour and we'll answer all your questions about volunteering for the festival. Shift sign up links will be sent out on Wednesday after the sessions.
Typically festival shifts occur anytime between 8am – 2am September 22 - October 1, 2015.
In addition to any shifts you sign up for, all volunteers must:
• Be able to attend one pre-meeting / training the week before the fest in September 21 or 22 between 6pm - 10pm.
Hey, What’s In It For Me?
Never let it be said that the Fantastic Fest would let ya’ll go empty handed. So, in addition to the time of your life and our undying gratitude, this year’s volunteers will receive the following:
All Volunteers Receive:
