Q: What kind of work is involved with volunteering for BFIG?

A: Volunteers participate in an online orientation shortly before the festival, and then typically assist on-site with at least 4 hours of work that may involve checking passes, guarding doors, assisting attendees, exhibitors, and speakers, video recording and/or picture taking, monitoring talks, and more!


Q: What are the benefits of volunteering for BFIG?

A: The joy of helping bring this excellent festival to the masses, but also: a free pass to enjoy the festival while not on duty and a snazzy BFIG t-shirt!


Q: What costs should a volunteer plan for?

A: You should plan to cover your own food, travel, parking, and lodging expenses.


Q: I’m from the faraway land of Not The United States, can I still volunteer?

A: International volunteers are definitely welcome at BFIG! You will need to take care of any visa requirements for travel from your country to the US.


Q: Can I apply as a group?

A: We love that you have a bunch of friends that all want to help out together, but we ask that you each apply individually.
