Not only will selection committee members get to view some outstanding, never-before-seen youth-made films—they will also be treated to some sweet NFFTY swag, including a $250-level NFFTY membership, a Best of NFFTY DVD, free tickets to general festival films, opening night tickets and more!

The EMP is looking for volunteer exhibition facilitators for their upcoming Reflections: The Mary Wilson Supreme Legacy Collection, organized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

Volunteers will do a combination of things including manning a facilitator cart and showing visitors clothing samples and offering detailed explanation of different sewing techniques – carts include clothing samples and additional resources on fashion, the Supremes and Motown.
