Volunteer Opportunities

It is time to register if you are interested in volunteering for  RiverRun’s 17th festival, (dates Thursday, April 16 through Sunday, April 26th).  We need you all, both past and new volunteers to make this year’s festival great as ever!   By clicking on the following link and filling in the form, you will be registered in our volunteer pool.  Within the next couple of weeks, you will hear back from Susan Campbell, Volunteer Assistant or me with information and instructions regarding actual festival job sign-ups.   Please note, all volunteers must register (re-register) every year.  As before, individuals under the age of 18 who want to volunteer will need permission from a responsible adult. Upon registering, the under- age volunteer must get in touch with Susan or me to accomplish that.


For these and other  questions, feel free to contact Jane McKim, Community Director, at jane@riverrunfilm.com or  (336) 724-1502 x107 or Susan at susan@riverrunfilm.com

About the program


Each year hundreds of dedicated volunteers help us to produce this nationally acclaimed festival. It's a wonderful way to get involved, make new friends, see great films and have a one-of-a-kind experience. Volunteers are needed to assist in all areas of the RiverRun International Film Festival — from theatre entrances to shuttle stops to managing hospitality suites…just to name a few.  RiverRun’s Volunteer Program is one of the most essential elements of putting on our ten day Festival and enables us to fulfill our commitment of enriching the regional community by bringing the world of film to life.

We hope you will consider joining the 350+ volunteers who lend their time and energy to RiverRun each year, working to enhance Winston-Salem’s cultural landscape and the lives of its citizens via cinematic programming.
