Be a part of the action and volunteer with
The Garden State Film Festival!


For 4 exciting days, March 19-22, 2015, GSFF will welcome film enthusiasts and professionals from around the world to celebrate the best of international cinema. As one of our grandest events to date, we’ll need a stellar team of volunteers to make the Festival a remarkable experience for all our guests. Get involved, meet new people, and discover the latest in international cinema.


2015 is our 13th festival ( it’s our second in Atlantic City and prior to that we were in Asbury Park)

GSFF is BIG DEAL we have had as many as 35,000 attendees in the past!

We are considered one of the most coveted true indie film festival in the USA with a stellar reputation globally on the festival circut.

We attract top name celebrities and give everyone a change to get up close to them ( Hint: watch out Ed Asner who will be with us again this year pinches!)


We are having a brief training session to get to know you and make sure you get a job you will enjoy. You must attend ONE of our volunteer orientations, taking place at

Dante Hall Theater

After you register on Shiftboard, you will be sent a login and password (you can then go in to your profile and change it to something you can easily remember). Please do that, as you will need to get into the system often.

So login to Shiftboard, and keep checking back for updates, current news, and specific directions to the volunteer orientations.
