Stanley Film Festival Call For Volunteers
The Stanley Film Festival (SFF) announced today its call for volunteers for the inaugural four-day event that will run May 2-5, 2013 in Estes Park, Colo. Celebrating the best in independent horror cinema, it will showcase a full slate of films, panels, student competitions, audience awards and receptions – all at the beautiful and historic Stanley Hotel. Aside from its local reputation as a haunted landmark spanning many years, the Stanley Hotel served as Stephen King’s inspirational Overlook Hotel in The Shining and is where the majority of the Festival will take place.
As an essential component to the success of this first-year festival, SFF is seeking dedicated and energetic film lovers to fill positions across five departments: Customer Service & Guest Relations, Hospitality Lounge, Special Events, Theater Operations & Production and Transportation. SFF volunteers are required to commit 15 hours at minimum and will receive a festival volunteer pass giving access to screenings plus an official volunteer t-shirt. Details about the SFF volunteer program including department descriptions are available at stanleyfilmfest.com/volunteer.
SFF has already hosted their kick-off party on Wednesday, March 27 at the Sie Film Center in Denver. This free event highlighted the festival program and offered a pre-release screening of a soon to be announced horror film.
For local attendees without a need for lodging, individual passes to attend SFF are now available. Packages to attend the Stanley Film Festival are also sale and include lodging at the Stanley Hotel. All purchase options are available online.
On April 8, individual tickets will go on sale to the public.
