Seeking Screeners for QCFF 2016

QueenCity1We are currently seeking screeners for next year’s film festival. The FIFTH ANNUAL Queen City Film Festival (QCFF) will be held October 6-9, 2016, at the Cumberland Ramada in Cumberland, Maryland. Between now and next April, when we open submissions for QCFF 2016, we want to recruit as many new screeners as possible to help us review submissions.

An excellent volunteer opportunity for qualified individuals. Ideal candidates will be residents of Allegany County, Maryland, have high-speed internet access, and possess extensive knowledge of cinema within one or more categories. You should be prepared to sort through many, many submissions to find the few hidden gems we will select and screen.

For QCFF 2016, our categories include: Animation (New!), Appalachian, Cult, Documentary, Horror/SciFi, Kids/Family, LGBT, and Music. We are also looking for category leads in Animation and Kids/Family — subject matter experts who would be interested in not just reviewing submissions but curating the category.
