Volunteers are undoubtedly the foundation of the Los Angeles Film Festival. With over 200 screenings and events held over 9 days, the Festival would not be able to function without Volunteers holding a variety of pivotal roles.
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 experience. Whether it’s working in theater operations, answering ticketing questions or setting up Q&A panel discussions, Volunteers help bring this world-class cinematic event to life.
Volunteers are required to:
- Work a minimum of 16 hours during the Festival
- Attend one mandatory training session
- Be 18 years of age or older at the time volunteer paperwork is signed
