Volunteers not only go behind the scenes, but are also at the forefront of the Festival, ensuring that our filmmakers & guests have an enjoyable experience. Whether it's working in theater operations, answering ticketing questions, or setting up a Q&A panel. If you are interested in helping out at this year's festival please contact us. OVFF Team currently seeking Festival interns include: Events/Production Film Independent Outreach Filmmaker/Guest Hospitality Marketing Publicity Sponsorship/Fundraising Technical (A/V) Theater Operations Ticketing Volunteers please send to ruby@othervenicefilmfestival.com

Many volunteers have dedicated their time over the years to help make the Other Venice Film Festival a success. Without volunteers we would not be able to put on this festival. From taking tickets to coordinating the parking lot, to manning the bar, willing volunteers bring their passion and flexibility to help create Venice Beach's unique renegade platform for independent film. If you are interested in helping out at this year's festival please contact info@othervenicefilmfestival.com with any inquiries.
