Legacy Volunteer Program
This program exists for volunteers who are returning for multiple years of volunteering. Volunteers returning for a second year are eligible to be pre-comped up to a Film Pass based on their festival hours. If they are scheduled for 10 hours or more they can collect a Film Pass at the start of the Festival regardless of when their shifts take place.
Volunteers returning for their third year are eligible to be pre-comped up to a Weekend Badge based on their scheduled hours. If they are scheduled for 10 they can receive a film pass, 20 they can get a Lone Star Badge, and 30 a Weekend Badge.
