Volunteers provide the connection between the Hot Springs Documentary Film Institute and our community. Volunteers are often our best ambassadors as they spread positive information about what we are doing and why HSDFF needs support. Volunteers are familiar faces- the ambassadors who help make our audience and guests feel welcome. The Volunteer Coordinators this year are listed below with contact info. They will be your primary contact and will coordinate recruiting, scheduling, orientation and communication for the volunteers.
We have transitioned to an online signup form called Sign Up Genius. This is the place where you sign up for all shifts and make any edits. Another volunteer coordinator may be joining the team as we get closer to the festival.

Volunteer Benefits: When you report for your first shift, you will receive an HSDFF festival T-shirt. When you volunteer for two 4-hour shifts, you will receive a day pass for one day of screenings. Also, we will have a Volunteer Appreciation Party after the festival. (Date to be determined) This event is invitation only and we’ll have food and beverage at the event to celebrate the completion of a successful festival.
