(WINDSOR, ON) – As the Media City Film Festival, a joint effort of international film lovers in Windsor and Detroit, heads for its 22nd edition from August 2 through 5, organizers have put out the call for volunteers.
The Festival will feature films, performances, and events involving filmmakers from Sri Lanka, Austria, Taiwan, France, Colombia, Portugal, Germany, Iran, Brazil, Italy, USA, Canada, and elsewhere. Volunteers receive a full-access festival pass and other perks.
As well, volunteers are needed to billet artists, pick-up airport arrivals, work at ticket and merchandise tables, and for hospitality and venue set-up. Other skills needed include technical instalment and load out, catalogue and poster distribution, and documentation and promotion.
Special volunteer recruitment meetings are planned for early July at Phog Lounge at 157 University Avenue West, on each of the four Mondays in the month, 3, 10, 17, and 24, starting at 7:00pm.
