About the Jaxon Film Fest

The Jackson Film Festival is a new regional film festival with a focus on independent films.  Our mission is not only to bring unique cinema to Jackson residents, but to encourage people from outside the Jackson area to come discover its historic theater and venues while experiencing one of the most beautiful regions in the Midwest. The  Jaxon Film Fest for its third season will take place in Jackson, Michigan at the Michigan Theatre on November 1 & 2, 2014.

This is our time as a community to shine!

The nest festival is November 1-2, 2014.   It will offer screenings, panels and social events that bring people together locally- and from around the world. To do this well, we need your time and creative energies.  We are recruiting Volunteers NOW for a number of TEAMS to handle various responsibilities, including:

Public Relations
Film Programming
Venue coordination and management
Workshop and Speaker Planning
Events Planning & Hospitality
VIP and Concierge Services,
Video and media development
                         ...and much more! 

If you feel that you have a talent and would like to assist us, if you would like to volunteer, we can use your help. 

To volunteer, please fill out the form  and tell us about yourself.   Tell us about your skills, abilities and experience. We will hold a volunteer orientation a couple weeks before the festival to assign roles during the festival weekend. We will base these roles upon your skills, abilities and interests and will work to fit each position to these qualities.  We want your experience as a volunteer to be fun for you; we want your experience to be positive so that you may wish to help us again next year.    

For now, we need help with marketing, promotion, sponsorships and other advanced activities.  Please let us know your availability.

This is YOUR Festival, to promote you and the collective talents of our creative community.  Please provide us with the best means to get a hold of you, whether email, cell phone, etc.   Soon, a Team member will get in touch to get you involved. 

Thank you!  We look forward to working with you.



We have a diverse slate of films on tap ranging from short films, documentaries, horror movies, dramas, and animation.  Although we’ll have movies on hand from around the world, the Jaxon Film Fest always places a special focus on Michigan films. 

See you at the movies!
