The Boston Festival of Indie Games wouldn’t exist without the hard work of each of our awesome volunteers. If you are interested in helping out, please apply, we’d love to hear from you!
BostonFIG takes place on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017. Volunteers will be able to help out now through the day of the event. If you are interested in helping out with things leading up to the festival, please say so on your application.
Average shift length is 4 hours long, with shifts the night before the event and going from 7am to 10pm on the day of the festival. There is also a required orientation the night before the event during load-in. More info on this will be sent with your acceptance e-mails. The more volunteers we have, the less work each of you will be asked to perform, so ask your friends to volunteer also!
Have other questions? E-mail [email protected] and our Volunteer Manager will get back to you as soon as possible. A lot of questions will be answered in your acceptance e-mails, which should be going out by September 1st.
