2021 Festival Volunteer

SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires environmental activism and a love for nature–through film. Wild & Scenic shares an urgent call to action, encouraging festival-goers to learn more about what they can do to save our threatened planet. This year our flagship festival will be entirely virtual and take place over the course of 11 days from Jan. 14-24, 2021.

While we will still feature 100+ films, have great programming like workshops, visiting filmmaker and activist talks, family-friendly programs, art exhibitions, parties, and more the virtual platform means the need for volunteers this year will look different. Normally we welcome the support of over 700 volunteers to make the festival a reality. Without a physical event though, most of our volunteer needs this year will focus on technical support for virtual festival attendees.

Do you have tech skill and computer knowledge that can help create an inspiring experience for our Wild & Scenic Film Festival viewers? 

Ready to help inspire thousands in taking action for our planet?

Wild & Scenic Film Festival is seeking virtual volunteers to help with tech support during the festival from January 14-24, 2021.  This year’s virtual festival will use an online streaming platform to reach thousands of viewers.

We are searching for 40 virtual tech volunteers with skills in computers, tech support, troubleshooting, and web experience to support our viewers throughout the 11-day festival as issues arise.  Volunteers will sign up for shifts to answer guest questions, provide customer service and assistance, or elevate an issue to Film Festival Producer or Eventive, the film streaming service.  Virtual Tech Volunteers just need a phone, computer, and a high-speed internet connection.

Thank you to our 800 amazing volunteers that work together each year to host SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival.  In 2021, the festival has gone Virtual and so have our volunteer needs.  We will miss seeing you all this year, but please check out our affordable film tickets in 2021 along with tons of online engagement through environmental workshops, chats, and talks.
