Bowery Film Festival is now accepting volunteer applications, from anyone age 18 and over, to join our team! Volunteer activities will include setting up at our screening venues, ticket ushering, hospitality servicing, event & merchandise table operations, coordinating interviews, setting up special presentations and after-parties.

We’re looking for reliable, professional, and friendly crew members to work during various days & times throughout the festival’s run. As a member of the Bowery Film Festival team you’ll have the opportunity to experience firsthand how Bowery Film Festival operates by working alongside festival core staff.

Volunteer members are entry level positions that may experience heavy activity with occasional downtime. Shifts average from 3 to 6 hours per day. Volunteers will be expected to take on different responsibilities throughout the course of their shift. (Applicants who feel they have special skills that may be beneficial to our team [e.g., Photography, Sales & Marketing, Cold Calling, Public Relations, Videography, etc.] may list those under the ‘SKILLS’ section to be considered for a permanent position within our team.)

In compliance with current NYC COVID-19 regulations all our volunteers must be fully vaccinated. Our team prioritizes the health and safety of all our guests, volunteers, and staff. As a safety measure we will provide everyone with the proper PPE, including face masks. Hand sanitizer will also be made available for use throughout the event.

Upon completion of services, verification letter and certificate will be available to student volunteers upon request.
