The Mead seeks reliable, kind, and enthusiastic film fans for the 2018 Margaret Mead Film Festival, which takes place at the American Museum of Natural History from Thursday, October 18, through Sunday, October 21, 2018.

We are seeking volunteers both before and during the festival. Beforehand, we need volunteers to distribute flyers or to screen films for quality control. At the festival, we seek volunteers who can work with us on ticketing, greeting guests, staffing the information desk or events, or a combination of some or all of these (floaters).
