Volunteer Spotlight: Fiona Hu

The Cinematheque
March 23 (Thursday)

Volunteers are vital to The Cinematheque, from serving our famous popcorn to welcoming cinephiles from near and far to our cinema. Without their enthusiastic effort we simply could not deliver the exceptional film programming we’re known for. We ❤️ our volunteers.

Introducing …

Fiona Hu

How did you become interested in volunteering at The Cinematheque and when did you start?
I started in about 2015. I had actually meant to visit Cineworks, but went to The Cinematheque by mistake! I met Linton and he hooked me up. 😁

What do you like most about volunteering at The Cinematheque?
Meeting new people, watching movies for free. Doing the parties! Working is fun too! 

What’s your favourite memory of volunteering with The Cinematheque so far?
Meeting my boyfriend Shaun. 😀 (He asked me to say it!) 

If you were a movie, which one would you be?
Roman Holiday.

What’s your go-to movie snack, and/​or what’s your go-to popcorn topping?
Popcorn with nutritional yeast. Daniel’s chocolates are good too!

Our team of volunteers plays an important role at The Cinematheque. They are the public face of our organization, selling you tickets at our box office and popcorn at our concession. They help in our film reference library and archive, deliver our program guides and posters, and assist with our Learning & Outreach programs and tasks in the office.
