Volunteer for Arizona’s Largest Film Festival!

The International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival is looking for fellow movie-lovers to volunteer for the upcoming festival! IHSFF 2019 will be held in the beginning of 2019 and will feature the finest in independent film from around the world, as well as celebrities, seminars, and parties all week long!

In exchange for a commitment of at least 24 hours, volunteers will receive a festival t-shirt and a full Phoenix Film Festival pass ($150 value, excludes the opening night screening). We are looking for enthusiastic people in the following areas: Theater Operations, Merchandising, Ticketing, Silent Auction, Kids’ Day and Events.

For new volunteers, please plan on attending one of our volunteer orientations (date and time TBD and will be scheduled closer to the Festival). Orientations usually last one hour.
