Boston Film Gala relies on the generosity and dedication of volunteers to make the event a success. Volunteers are vital to the BFG mission!
We seek local volunteers from the Boston area who share a commitment to the BFG philosophy and support the independent film community. Alongside BFG staff, our dedicated volunteers assist both with operations prior to the two-day event, and also on-site during the event.
Whether you are able to devote a few weeks, a few days, or a few hours, you will help make BFG a success for those participating and those attending! And the real benefits of volunteering aren’t just things – or films – but rather the very experiences themselves!
BFG Volunteering Opportunities
Assist with logistics for Filmmaker Q&As. Act as a liaison and provide information services for filmmakers.
