Lights! Camera! Volunteers!

Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival is seeking dynamic, energetic, and reliable individuals to join a team of more than 700 volunteers who help make an impact on the festival, and the artists, innovators, and audiences Cinequest serves.

Located in the home of the world’s most influential media technology companies such as: Apple, Cisco, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, and LinkedIn, the Festival celebrates the convergence of art and technology across the Bay Area. Showcasing premier films, renowned and emerging artists, and breakthrough technology –including the continuation of our Virtual Reality Experience, Cinequest has led the world in presenting and implementing the innovations that have revolutionized film making, exhibition, and distribution.

Named the best film festival by USA Today readers -- Cinequest strives to always provide an intimate and world class experience at one of the largest film festivals in the world.

This is where you come in! Our volunteers are vital to the community experience and take on one or multiple roles in order to ensure that this year’s Film and Creativity Festival exceeds the expectations of our artists, innovators, and patrons. As a volunteer you will have the opportunity to connect with like-minded lovers of art and tech, as well as experience the events as festival insiders!

The Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival 2020 will run from March 3rd to March 15th in both San Jose and Redwood City CA. It will include hundreds of special events, film premieres, workshops, and celebrations. There are volunteer opportunities both before and during the festival in a variety of roles to suit the various skill sets and interests of our volunteers.

Roles include: Administration, Box Office, Concierge, Events, Greeters, Hospitality Envoy, Marketing, Projectionist, Speakers, Special Forces, VR Customer Service/Tech Guru, Theater Managers, and Ushers.

Volunteers can earn perks like free movie tickets, and festival access passes, as well as the reward of providing an invaluable service to Cinequest and your community!

Volunteers are required to attend our Volunteer kick-off event on Sunday, Jan. 19th at Pruneyard Cinemas (1875 S. Bascom Ave, Campbell, CA 95008) from 9:30am to 11:30am.
