Want to get involved with ReelAbilities Columbus 2012? There are multiple opportunities for volunteering before and during this year’s festival. Below are descriptions for volunteer opportunities and dates on which we need assistance.  Volunteers will receive free entry to one film screening of their choice (except Nov. 3) and volunteer t-shirt.

FESTIVAL PREPARATION
In the weeks leading up to the festival (October 1- November 2), we need assistance prepping materials, packing boxes, and working on event promotion through mailings, social media, and brochure drop-offs throughout the city. Assisting with this part of the festival can occur in 1-3 hour shifts at any point during our office hours (Monday-Friday from 9a – 5p) at 77 South High Street, 2nd Floor, Columbus, OH, 43215.

USHERING
For two of the festival’s evenings, ushers are needed to escort guests among various locations within the venue. Ushers also assist in answering questions and directing festival attendees prior to and following film screenings.

FESTIVAL SETUP, STAFFING, AND TEARDOWN
During the entire festival, volunteers will assist with the setup of information, ticketing, and check-in tables as well as the staffing and teardown of those arrangements. This also includes loading and unloading the festival rental van, aiding the exhibition curator in the setup of the ReelAbilities travelling visual art exhibition component, and assisting workshop facilitators.
