LALIFF celebrates its 14th year on Aug 19-25, 2010 and seeks energetically resourceful volunteers.
The Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival (LALIFF), is a non-profit 501c (3) organization whose mission is to support and promote the development and exhibition of diverse visions by Latino filmmakers. In the process promoting awareness of the richness and diversity of our Latin cultures, our artistry and our countries through film, the most powerful medium in the world, as a way to foster cultural harmony while serving as a springboard and catalyst for the promotion and distribution of Latino film as we develop an audience for our works.
The Festival would like to invite all parties interested, but is particularly in need of volunteers with expertise or a great disposition to work in the following areas:
Production: productions assistants.
Film presentations: staging staff.
Reception/Special events: set-up of sites, catering, coordination of guests.
Transportation: responsible drivers who will welcome accompany visiting filmmakers/VIPs.
Office Support: telephone reception, filing, correspondence.
Bilingual volunteers are especially encouraged, but this is not a requirement. LALIFF is a wonderful opportunity for you to participate in a community effort that promotes Latino culture and art in Los Angeles. All volunteers will receive 2 movie passes/tickets for every 8 volunteered hours (excluding gala events and special features) in appreciation for their efforts. Other incentives include a complementary shift meal, festival t-shirts and noteworthy networking opportunities.
