2016 Milwaukee Film Festival | 9/22 - 10/6


MKE Film:

We love our volunteers. Without them, we could not put on a world-class film festival (and other year-round events). Our volunteers help out in all facets of our organization, including theatre operations, street team, box office, educational screenings, special events, and assisting in the Milwaukee Film office.


To be a Milwaukee Film Volunteer, fill out the application through our online scheduler, Shiftboard. Once your application is processed, you will receive a welcome email from us that will include your password. (Make sure to check your spam folder!) You'll then be able to join teams, view our calendar, and sign up for shifts (once they are posted). As the festival approaches, we will begin providing more opportunities to get involved.

(NOTE: If you have volunteered with us in the past, and already have a Shiftboard account, you do not need to register again. Log in to Shiftboard here.)


Not only are you working alongside others who want to support and celebrate cinema, you also get to see movies!

One (1) volunteer voucher = one (1) ticket to one (1) film at the 2015 Milwaukee Film Festival

NOTE: Each shift you work earns you one volunteer voucher. Vouchers are exchanged for tickets to specific festival films valued at $12 or less, depending on individual ticket availability. Vouchers cannot be used for the Opening Night Film, Centerpiece Film, Super Secret Members Screening, or Closing Night Film.

Twenty-five (25) hours volunteered = single Festival Fan membership*
Forty (40) hours volunteered = dual Festival Fan membership*

Eighty (80) hours volunteered = One (1) Festival Pass (valued at $500) for the 2017 Festival*



In addition to earning vouchers for your shifts volunteered, you can watch films during your shift as long as the film isn't on RUSH and you aren't needed elsewhere by the theatre manager. That is a potential for two free movies to thank you for your hard work.
