YPFP DC Public Service: Volunteer at GI Film Festival
Join YPFP members in volunteering with the GI Film Festival for their Red Carpet "First Look" Screening. The GI Film Festival is "the first in the nation to exclusively celebrate the successes and sacrifices of the service member through the medium of film." Volunteers will be able to help with a variety of tasks including escorting attendees to their seats and to the reception afterwards as well as managing ticket distribution. This is a great opportunity to be part of an event honoring the men and women who serve our country.
Volunteers may also be able to see the film being screened and get the special opportunity to attend the reception afterwards (or stay to volunteer!) at 9:30 pm at Samuel Beckett’s Irish Gastro Pub, 2800 S Randolph Street.
Please note: If you would like to volunteer, there is a brief required training session which you can choose to attend on either April 20th at 1:00 pm or May 1st at 6:30 pm.
About the GI Film Festival:
The GI Film Festival (GIFF) is a 501 c(3) non-profit educational organization dedicated to sharing the military experience in and out of the arena of war. The festival is the first in the nation to exclusively celebrate the successes and sacrifices of the service member through the medium of film.
The GIFF presents films from new and established international and domestic filmmakers that honor the heroic stories of the American Armed Forces and the worldwide struggle for freedom and liberty. Some of the films screened are voted on by fans. Others are screened for the first time. All will in some way express the courage and selflessness of our fighting men and women and the value of their work.
The GI Film Festival is open to filmmakers of every experience level, from first-timers to veteran directors and producers. Prizes are awarded annually to winners in three main categories: feature, documentary, and film shorts.
In addition to presenting feature, documentary, and short film screenings, the GIFF also presents panel discussions, educational forums and special events.
