QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

 

What is a Film Festival?

A film festival is an organized presentation of films in one or multiple venues and typically in a single city or region over multiple days. Films can consist of shorts, features, or documentaries which can run 5 minutes to 60+ minutes in length. Venice Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, and of course, Julien Dubuque International Film Festival, are some well-known festivals. While film watching is a main priority, the opportunity to network is also important, as many producers will be in attendance for the promotion of their films.

Who Goes to a Film Festival?

Anybody who loves to have fun, see awesome films, interact with celebrities, and network with industry professionals is invited to attend.

 

As a volunteer, what would I be doing?

Good question. Volunteers could be expected to help at our ticket box office, greet incoming attendees, cater to industry professionals, or supervise our film venues on DBQ Main Street. Volunteer roles offer the ability for great experience, while also catering to the most outgoing or reserved individuals. Shifts run 3-6 hours or longer depending on the responsibility level.
