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.

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you at #SJFF 2019!
