The Greenwich International Film Festival (GIFF) relies on the support of volunteers to help run the 5-day festival, as well as events throughout the year. Volunteers ensure the best film-going experience possible for our patrons, filmmakers, jurors and international visitors. As a non-profit organization, we are grateful for our volunteers. We could not run the Greenwich International Film Festival without your hard work and dedication.
