Attendees may volunteer their time before or during the event in exchange for a festival pass.
Volunteer activities begin a few months prior to the event. Volunteers are asked to work 16 hours for the festival. In return, volunteers receive one Waimea Four-Day Film Pass for themselves, plus one additional Waimea Six-Punch Pass which can be given to a friend or family member.
Volunteer activities range from putting up posters and running errands, to staffing the theatres and Festival Hospitality Desk, to providing catering services or joining the technical team to help run projection or assist with set-up and break down of theatre screens and equipment.
Please contact the festival office for an application to join the volunteer team.
