Harassment, threatening behavior, and violence will not be tolerated.

This year, we need volunteer help with bartending (tips certified), scanning tickets, handing out and collecting ballots, as well as managing our merchandise table at each screening.

Please review the opportunities and sign up! You are invited to stay and enjoy the film as well, so grab a friend and be a part of Aspen Film’s Academy Screenings this holiday season.
