A great film festival needs great volunteers. We’re looking for friendly folks who love independent film to help us run a smooth festival, November 15 – 17. Volunteers help with tickets, seating, and venue maintenance. For every film block a volunteer serves, they’ll get two tickets to another block. To apply, please fill out the form below and tell us in two to three sentences why you want to volunteer with us.


The Town of Carrboro and the Carrboro Tourism Development Authority generously provide most of the festival’s funding, but we rely on further contributions to improve the festival every year. Financial contributions are tax-deductible and help us enhance programming and attract more travelers to Carrboro during the festival weekend. Sponsors are recognized in our newsletter, on social media, and on screen throughout the festival. To inquire about sponsorship, please fill out the form below.
