Utah Film Center needs volunteers! Without your help, we couldn’t produce these premier events: Tumbleweeds, the only independent, international film festival for children & youth in the Mountain West, in March; Damn These Heels, Utah’s only LGBTQ film festival, in July; and our monthly signature series Through the Lens, offered in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest.

Special Notes About Volunteering at Tumbleweeds

  • As Tumbleweeds is truly an inter-generational Festival, we also welcome those who wish to bring their children, grandchildren or nieces and nephews to volunteer alongside them.
  • Please check the location of your volunteer shifts carefully. All Festival shifts taking place March 5th – March 8th and March 13th -16th are at The City Library downtown. Festival Field Trip shifts during the week of March 9th – March 12th could be at The City Library downtown, the Viridian Center in West Jordan, or at the SCERA theater in Orem. All shifts located outside of The City Library are noted as such. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
    • The City Library 210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84111
    • SCERA 745 State St, Orem, UT 84058
    • Viridian 8030 S 1825 W, West Jordan, UT 84088

There are opportunities to assist us with box office & ticketing, bartending, event load in & load out, event & crowd management, and script reading for our littlest viewers. Not only will participation garner you loads of smiles and appreciation, we offer perks such as attendance to festival films and full-year Film Center memberships based on your time donated.
