CinefestOZ is calling for volunteers to lend a hand behind the scenes at next month’s festival.

Originally run by friends and family of the board, the volunteer Movie Crew has grown from 30 to 300 since starting in 2008.

Movie Crew officer Wendy Clutterbuck said people came from as far as Perth to volunteer.

“People do all kinds of things, from driving to food and bar service and festival promotion,” she said.

Michelle Reilly, volunteering this year for the second time, said CinfestOZ was one of the best events in the South West and being involved was incredible.

“Volunteering went beyond my wildest expectations and it’s just something so exciting to be a part of,” she said.

Each volunteer gets a Movie Crew polo shirt, the opportunity to attend at least one general screening, attend the after-party and receives a gold star, which is worn with pride by returning Movie Crew.

Aspiring Movie Crew are encouraged to visit cinefestoz.com and read the Movie Crew Info Pack, then follow the prompts to register.
