The Illinois State Museum is looking for friendly volunteers to assist with its popular Summer Film Fest program. The Summer Film Fest provides a 30-minute, engaging, educational film each Tuesday in June and July at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Volunteers are needed to open the Museum’s auditorium, run the lights and audio-visual equipment (including a DVD/VHS player and sound system), greet visitors, and make announcements before the films. Summer Film Fest shifts are available on Tuesdays in June and July from 9:15-10:45 a.m. and 1:15-2:45 p.m.

Training on equipment and working with the public will be provided. Summer Film Fest volunteers must be adults or teens age 16 or older. Volunteers new to the Museum must complete an application process and background check. For more information on this and other volunteer opportunities at the Illinois State Museum, please contact or (217) 782-0061.
