Volunteering at the Sundance Film Festival
A sales representative formerly based in Charleston, South Carolina, Florida resident Bill Oliver stands out as the inventor of the Bodacious Beach Blanket and a medical sales representative in Sarasota. Outside of his professional life, Bill Oliver enjoys traveling. Among other destinations, he has visited the Grand Canyon and the Sundance Film Festival.
With roots dating back to 1978, the Sundance Film Festival is the premier event hosted by the Sundance Institute, an organization founded by actor Robert Redford. Each year, thousands of film critics, Hollywood executives, actors, and other celebrities come to Park City, Utah, to celebrate the best in independent film. The festival also offers numerous volunteer opportunities for film buffs that would like to experience the event.
Volunteers have a range of options for helping at Sundance, from working as an artist liaison to taking tickets. Additionally, Sundance maintains a student-volunteer program in which groups of six or more students from a university can volunteer with festival operations while participating in film workshops and seminars.
While most of the volunteer positions are located at the main festival in Park City, Sundance also relies on volunteers for additional events in nearby Salt Lake City and at the Sundance Resort near Provo.
