The Woodstock Film Festival is looking for interns and volunteers for the 2017 Festival!

The 18th Annual Woodstock Film Festival will take place this October, Wednesday the 11th through Sunday the 15th.

Hailed as "A True American Maverick Among Fests" and named among the top 50 film festivals worldwide, the Woodstock Film Festival premieres exceptional films, hosts the most talented emerging and established professionals in the movie industry; presents A-list concerts, panels and parties, and creates stimulating, innovative programming year-round. Events generate large, enthusiastic audiences, news headlines, social media exposure and a gamut of other promotional opportunities.

At the Woodstock Film Festival, participants and visitors find themselves in a friendly, casual environment, one that is conducive to creativity, networking and a good time, surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. In addition to drawing sold-out audiences from the 20 million people who live within a two-hour drive, the festival has attracted visitors from all parts of the country and the world.

Festival mainstays include industry executives, television anchors, network and cable executives, magazine and newspaper editors, record label executives, writers, painters, models, entertainment lawyers, producers, critics and publishers.

The Woodstock Film Festival is a non-profit, 501c3 with a mission to present an annual program and year-round schedule of film, music and art-related activities that promote artists, culture, inspired learning and diversity. The 18th Woodstock Film Festival returns October 11-15, 2017 with an extraordinary lineup of fiercely independent films, panels and special events in Woodstock, Rhinebeck, Kingston, Rosendale and Saugerties.

We are currently looking primarily for interns and volunteers. Job descriptions and expectations can be found below.
