Palm Springs, CA – The Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films is looking for volunteers to join us August 23 – 29. Our programming team has put together an amazing selection of more than 350 short films, programmed in 90-minute packages featuring a splendid array of thematically-linked shorts, including a dazzling selection of comedies, thrillers, films noir, dramas, romances and documentaries. This year’s Festival line-up includes a tantalizing selection of special programs, theme parties and seminars.

The success that ShortFest has achieved in its first 12 years is highly dependent on the participation of a staff of dedicated volunteers. Volunteers will be able to choose from various assignments including Office work, Phones, Transportation, Film Market, Guest Services, Credentials, Merchandising, Theater Operations and more.
