Volunteer with Lights. Camera. Help.

What does it mean to be a Lights. Camera. Help. volunteer? If you enjoy Austin’s nonprofit community and have a desire to learn more about the film industry, you’re halfway there. We’re looking for a dedicated group of volunteers to be the backbone of the Lights. Camera. Help. Film Festival from Sept. 12-14, 2012.

You’ll experience the inner-workings of a film festival, all the while having a great time with fellow volunteers, LCH staff and attendees. But let’s not forget hard work. Our volunteers understand, to get the most out of the festival they have to roll up their sleeves and give that extra effort. From taking tickets and greeting guests, to ushering VIPs and acting as production assistants, we know our volunteers will be there to create a fantastic experience—for festival-goers and fellow volunteers alike.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to be a part of a three-day event that celebrates the very best PSAs, shorts and feature length films that focus on the good happening in our world.

If you have questions or want to know more, email our volunteer coordinator at or call 918 361 7061.
