The James River Film Society is an all-volunteer run organization; we have no paid staff. So we’re always looking for volunteers! Please contact us if you can design print materials, help maintain this website and social media stuff, run projectors (or want to learn), put up flyers and posters, set up and break down at events, work the door, sell t-shirts and other merchandise, or help with administrative tasks (like maintaining our mailing list). Of course, if you can think of other ways to help or get involved, we’re always open to suggestions.

Show up
The James River Film Society’s goal is to support independent media artists and enthusiasts by providing public screenings, classes, workshops as well as access to equipment, information and resources. An important part of building a film-centric community is for people interested in film to show up to events and support the community at large. If you appreciate the work of the James River Film Society we encourage you to participate in our events and programs as a filmmaker or as a audience member. Both are very important!

Share your talents
We are currently looking for volunteers interested in writing for the James River Film Journal as well as talented graphic designers who can help with our event promotion. For more information contact Kendra Pittman.
