From our friends at Food Film Festival:

Thank you for your interest in joining us at the 9th Annual New York City Food Film Festival where you get to taste what you see on the screen!  Work along side well- known Chefs, Mixologists and more and help serve up tasty dishes directly from and inspired by the films shown each night.  All in support of the Billion Oyster Project.

We are looking for volunteers to help check-in guests, act as ushers, serve up food and drink and help make the event run smoothly.  All volunteers will be able to experience the event – including getting tastes of all the great food served up.  General Volunteers, we will provide a Festival t-shirt to be worn while working.  We simply ask for clean, non-torn pants and comfortable shows to be worn with it.  Culinary volunteers, we ask that you wear your chef whites, if possible.

The New York City Food Film Festival is taking place October 22- October 25 at the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square.  (For those of you lovely people who have played with us in the past, please note the venue has changed!)

Visit www.thefoodfilmfestival.com for more information on the Festival and please find more volunteer information below.
