Volunteers & Interns


Volunteers are undoubtedly the foundation of the Los Angeles Film Festival. With over 150 screenings and events over 9 days, the Festival would not be able to function without the vital roles that Festival Volunteers hold. Not only do Volunteers work behind the scenes, they are also at the forefront of the Festival, ensuring that our filmmakers and guests have a truly enjoyable Film Festival experience. Whether it’s working in theater operations, answering ticketing questions or setting up a Q&A panel discussion, Volunteers help bring to life a world-class cinematic event. Volunteers must sign up for a minimum of 20 hours during the Festival and need to attend one mandatory training session. For up-to-the-minute reports on all things Festival-related, including Volunteer registration, follow us @LAFilmFest or like us at Facebook.com/LAFilmFest.
