Getting Involved

Now is a good time to consider becoming involved in the Film Festival. The two main things we need are VOLUNTEERS, and SPONSORS:

Volunteers Needed!

A project like this is the work of many people, so we looking for many volunteers. No experience is necessary, only a strong interest in helping out in any of the following capacities:


Films Selection- Help find, arrange, select, and present films.


Media and Technical Services- Insure logistical and technical aspects of the showing the films go smoothly.


Press, Promotion and Publicity- Develop and distribute flyers, expand community networks, manage press contacts, and use other means to insure the widest possible audience. 


Ticket Sales- Help with distribution and sale of tickets.


Sponsorship- Work with Deaf organizations and Deaf-friendly local businesses to develop sponsors for the event.


Reception- organize food donations and serve food at festival.


Concessions- Assist with vendors and sell festival items on the day of the event.


To volunteer for the Film Festival please contact Brenda Schertz at


Become a Sponsor!

Sponsors provide financial support, donations of refreshments and time. The festival would be impossible without them. If you belong to an organization that could become a sponsor, or would like make a contact with such an organization, please contact David Crespo at


Charitable contributions to the Festival are tax deductible. Please make checks payable to University of Southern Maine-Linguistics.
