It's coming sooner than it seems, folks — OC's crown jewel of film fests comes back around on April 24th. Covering it is one of the highlights of my year, and I certainly hope our coverage is a highlight for readers as well.
But for us to do our job, we need people like you. People who love film and would like to put in a few hours dealing with people like me (I'm polite in person, swear to God). In other words…volunteers.
From the official press release:
Volunteers will have the opportunity to fill many fun positions at the festival, including guest relations, merchandise sales, theater ushering, office reception, and gala and special events staffing. Three to four hour shifts are available in the mornings and evenings. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. College students and seniors are welcome.
Interested volunteers should attend one of the mandatory orientation sessions:
March 25th at 7:00 PM – Friend's Meeting Room of the Newport Beach Public Library, 1000 Avocado Ave.
March 26th at 7:00 PM – Friend's Meeting Room of the Newport Beach Public Library, 1000 Avocado Ave.
