Rewards & Policies
Vouchers: During the festival, for every shift (@1 1/2 to 2 hrs), you will receive a single-admission volunteer voucher to be exchanged at the SJFF box office for a general admission ticket, good for most films. Vouchers are good for the current festival only, and cannot be combined for higher priced special events tickets.
Viewing Films: Please do not sign up for a volunteer shift if you wish to see the film during your shift, as there is overlap. Most shifts begin an hour prior to showtime and end a half hour to an hour into the film. If able, we will release volunteers but it should neither be expected nor is it guaranteed.
