We are seeking volunteer photographers for the 2016 GEORGIA LATINO FILM FESTIVAL. If you’re looking to gain experience in a unique event atmosphere.
I| FILM VENUE TEAM
Responsible for getting people seated so we start on time. If reserved seating is used for certain movies, must make sure seat markers are not taken or moved. Guide people to their seats, provide directions for water, rest rooms. Help cleanup, take out trash. At direction of Venue Manager, can release seats before movie starts.
Stand at entrance to the lobby and ensure that pass holders and ticket holders are admitted according to their priority when doors open. After all pass holders have been admitted and a count of open seats taken, the Ticket Taker will sell Standby Tickets (cash only). Ticket Taker will be responsible for filling out attendance form for each movie and reconciling cash to Venue Manager. Remaining calm when all around appear to be in chaos is essential. Multi-tasking skills invaluable.
Standing next to Ticket Taker, uses a clicker to count the number of pass holders admitted and Standby Tickets sold. Might not sound like much, but this task is actually critical to GALFF efforts to secure grants for the following year as we are always asked to document our attendance figures. It’s much tougher than it sounds to keep an accurate count in the swell of the crowd. Attention to detail and ability to see the big picture value of this task helpful in this position.
II | BOX OFFICE
Trained team of volunteers needed to assist the festival’s ticketing needs at the box office during the festival, and relaying information to festival-goers. Maintain a secure environment. Cash handling experience, attention to detail, and a helpful, customer service attitude are essential. Responsible for selling items GALFF has decided to make available to festival-goers. Keep merchandise table/display neat and attractive, restocking items as needed. Maintain a secure environment. Prior retail sales experience a plus. Will sweep film venues twice daily to pick up cash and ballots.
