Trail Dance Film Festival needs volunteers

Duncan_The award winning Trail Dance Film Festival is back and it's only a week away.  Last year was the festival's first year, and the first time that Southwest Oklahoma has ever held a film festival. 

Founders of the Trail Dance Film Festival want to provide an opportunity for filmmakers across the world to compete and support each other in Oklahoma.  And, this year's festival promises to be bigger and better, so they'll need volunteers.  Just think you could be a part of Oklahoma film history.

With only one week to go, founder Anthony Foreman has been busy preparing for the event.  He says this year they will be screening 74 films in just three days.  "It's exciting to see how much bigger we've gone this year and ...from last year's event and see where it's going this year," he says.  "To be involved with an event like this that brings international film makers to Duncan is very exciting and you get to see a lot of films that you ordinarily wouldn't get to see."

Debra Burch from the Duncan Chamber of Commerce is excited, too.  She says there's something for everyone and they could use the volunteers.  "They can distribute information, they can help us put up posters, they can drive some of our guests around that don't know where they're going and they would have access to all the films and it will be great fun," she says.

Foreman says no experience is required, and there's no training involved if you do volunteer.  And, if you pitch in, you will receive an all access weekend pass.  So, if you have some free time next weekend, and want a chance to view some films before they hit the big screen; contact the Duncan Chamber of Commerce.

The film festival promises to be great for business in the area, as well, since there will be a lot of visitors to Duncan during that weekend.  Duncan business owners say they're thrilled that the town is the home of the festival, and it's great for the local economy.

If you would like to volunteer at the Second Annual Trail Dance Film Festival, visit their website at www.traildancefilmfestival.com, or call the Duncan Chamber of Commerce at 580-255-3644.
