Welcome to all interested in volunteering for BFMM / FADE2BLACK (F2B) Film Festival!


The F2BFF Premiere, October 12-14, 2017 starts the buzz on the history of Black American Film. In general F2B is NOT a competition but a two and 1/2 day celebratory retrospective history of Black American Film from its beginnings in 1910 to the present. Under the auspices of BLACK FOLKS MAKE MOVIES, F2B, is a bi-annual, education based event tracing the contributions of Black American filmmakers decade by decade.

Volunteering is not just about selling advance & day of ticket sales, wearing a special badge, showing people to their seats or watching movies for free, it's also about setting up & tearing down before & after each screening, helping organize and present this Spring's BFMM Fundraiser, marketing & advertising sales for the printed Festival Program, and more. All are needed to organize, run and move this Special Event forward to its Fall 2017 Premiere.
