SFFILM is fueled by a thriving volunteer community. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, ranging from students to retirees. We provide a positive and friendly environment for volunteers, and we are proud to have community support in producing exciting events that celebrate film and storytelling. Qualified volunteers enjoy working with the public and understand the importance of being reliable.
