Volunteer

Volunteering at the NW Film Center is a great way to get involved with the regions largest film institution. As a volunteer, you’ll gain new skills and experience, meet interesting people, and enjoy a fun, people-oriented atmosphere.

  • Theater Volunteers

The Northwest Film Center screens over 500 films each year, most of these as part of our regular, year-round programming at the Whitsell Auditorium in the Portland Art Museum.  Our dedicated team of Theater Volunteers are integral to bringing these films to the Portland viewing community.

Theater Volunteers assist the Theater Staff in various duties including attendance tracking, ticket taking, ushering, line management and bag checking.

If you’d like to know more about the specifics of Theater Volunteering, please contact Micah Vanderhoof here.

 

  • Festival Volunteers

The Northwest Film Center produces several film festivals, including the Portland International Film Festival (our largest film festival), and the Northwest Filmmaker’s Festival (the Northwest’s premiere showcase for regional filmmakers).  Each film festival has a festival-specific team of volunteers with varying roles.  For more information on volunteering for a specific festival, please visit that festival’s page.

 

  • Office Volunteers

The Northwest Film Center’s administrative offices also regularly recruits volunteers and interns to assist with administration-related duties.  For more information about specific Office Volunteer roles, please check our Employment & Internships Page.
