The LA Film Festival would not be possible without volunteers and interns holding a variety of pivotal roles.


The LA Film Festival relies on hundreds of individuals from all walks of life who generously donate their time. Volunteers help bring this world-class cinematic event to life! We strive to build a positive and welcoming volunteer community and have unique opportunities in departments across the Festival, including theater operations, industry relations, Festival information, publicity, special events and more.

We are now accepting applications for the 2018 LA Film Festival.

Three volunteer orientations will be held in early September. Details are available at shiftboard.com/filmindependent. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.


Our volunteers receive a LA Film Festival volunteer t-shirt and screening vouchers. Vouchers can be exchanged for regularly priced film tickets at the box office. We will also hold a party for all of our volunteers after the Festival!

We are seeking volunteer photographers for the 2018 LA Film Festival. If you own a high quality camera and have event photography experience, we’d love to hear from you! Please email [email protected] for more information/to apply.


In addition to volunteers, the LA Film Festival relies on talented interns to help make the Festival be the best that it can be. We are seeking interns to assist with community outreach, filmmaker relations, industry relations, marketing, membership, operations/production, social media, special events and more.

Please view our LA Film Festival Internship Opportunities posting at filmindependent.org/jobs for more details on how to apply.

Thank you for your interest in the LA Film Festival! We look forward to hearing from you.
