Film fest volunteers sought

The Camden International Film Festival is seeking volunteers for its 2012 Camden International Film Festival and Points North Documentary Forum, running Sept. 27-30.

Enthusiastic individuals are welcome to be part of the action, gain experience in film festival planning, connect with filmmakers from around the world, and see a selection of documentaries screened for the first time in New England.

There are many ways to help, including ticket taking, event catering, street team, driving and ushering.

Organizers are also looking for dedicated volunteers to help before and after the festival weekend. Volunteers will be rewarded with free tickets to screenings, a volunteer-only Sunday night party and further incentives based on the number of hours each volunteer is able to commit.
