Fast Forward Film Festival Ambassador Program

Interested in becoming an FFFF Ambassador: Click here to sign-up! 

Ambassadors will serve as the voice of the Festival to their school, campus or organization. They will build awareness and involvement through flyer distribution, attending FFFF events and posting to social media.

This volunteer position is an excellent opportunity to build your resume and get involved in the Rochester region. You will develop skills in networking, public speaking and social media.

Ambassadors will be given full training, VIP access to the film festival, and earn a $50 gift card for their efforts. We’d be happy to work with your advisor to develop a plan to get credit for the Ambassador Program, if applicable to your curriculum.

The responsibilities of an Ambassador include:

  • Attending Fast Forward Film Festival Volunteer & Ambassador trainings and inspiration events 
  • Lead the development of a list of fifty (50) names, emails, and home/cell phone numbers of people interested in submitting a film (e.g. think outside the box, ask teachers and faculty to help you)
  • Distributing thirty (30) Call for Submission flyers to school areas, community boards OR via email to your entire school body with appropriate staff/faculty member by January 15, 2018 
  • Post about the Fast Forward Film Festival (digital flyer, text, photo, link to submit) on social media at least five (5) times with appropriate staff/faculty member by February 1, 2018.
  • Additional community outreach opportunities available
  • Recruit volunteers and attend the Fast Forward Film Festival on April 13 and April 14.

Pre-Festival Support: FFFF is looking for ambassadors this year who will participate in community outreach to local schools. The right fit for this role will be energetic, feel comfortable with public speaking and be interested in working with the youth.
