Sure, there's the pleasure of rubbing shoulders with the film elite. But plenty of elbow grease goes into producing the Telluride Film Festival. Our hard-working, problem-solving, movie-loving, people-pleasing, get-your-hands-dirty group of dedicated volunteers and staff are known as SHOWCorps. Corps is defined as: an organized body of people acting together - and that is exactly what we are! SHOWCorps is the nuts and bolts of the Festival. What kind of talents can we use? Ushers to finesse the theater crowds. Food servers to nourish hungry souls. Muscles to haul gear. Your first step is to apply - we'll figure out where to harness your talents.
We require our staff to work 30+ hours over the course of the 4 days of the Festival as well as the few days before and after. In exchange, you will receive a staff pass, access to our staff clubhouse with 3 meals a day, admission to some of the Festival special events, great Festival schwag, and of course the fun that comes with working with great people.
Although positions are offered first to returning staff members, we welcome applications from new candidates. The decision to accept and assign staff depends on dates of availability, specific skills and overall enthusiasm for working long hours with a smile.
For those who want the fullest ‘behind-the-scenes’ adventure, we select 8-10 eager applicants as Production Apprentices for an intensive 6 weeks of preparation in Telluride. Remember the Elementary School gym that transforms into a galactic movie palace? That takes many hands and long hours. Carpentry, rigging, painting and other production skills — apprentices acquire a real hands-on view of assembling a world-class event from the ground up. More information and the Production Apprentice Application Form are available below.
The PA’s must arrive ready to work on Monday, July 28th by 8AM and work through Friday, September 5th, 2014 until 5PM. Like other volunteers, the Production Apprentices will not be compensated monetarily during the 4-day Festival itself, but receive a Festival pass and privileges in exchange for time working during the Festival weekend.
The Telluride Film Festival is also looking for a Computer Science Intern (Production Apprentice) to commit to a period of 7 weeks starting Monday, July 28th through Friday, September 12th. The I.T. intern will help set up, maintain and break down computer networks in multiple locations as well as help with a variety of staff computer needs. The applicant will be working under the direction of the Festival’s I.T. Manager and the Production Department. When not needed to do work for the I.T. Manager, the intern will work with other PA’s on a variety of tasks. The Telluride Film Festival operates on mostly Macintosh systems and familiarity with troubleshooting Mac systems is an important qualifier. The applicant should also be prepared to train and educate others. Applicants should be able to trouble shoot network problems and a variety of system issues.
