Following up on the Deep Ellum Arts/Music Festival, I signed up for the Dallas International Film Festival.
Four crazy days and nights working some volunteer magic at the Angelika Film Center.
First Night: People Counter.
Yea! I get to work with a prop!
Second Day: Ticket taker.
Yea! I AM the door master.
Third Day: Miss Information
Yea! I did a lot of pointing, schmoozing, and watching everyone for 20 seconds ride up the escalator while they awkwardly look for a quick escape.
Final Day: Runner and coniseur of free popcorn
Who can deny free popcorn and all the butter you can dream of?
So, WHY volunteer?
1. Meet great people
2. See awesome Dallas spots
3. Great people watching
4. FREE movie passes (for every five hours volunteered I got one ticket)
5. They clothe you!
6. They feed you!
I still love this town.
