DC Shorts Film Festival and Screenwriting Competition

Successful film festivals are the result of wonderful volunteers. And with our expanded program, help is needed more than ever.

Ushers, Party Help and Box Office

Volunteers assist theater managers with ticket sales, patron seating, filmmaker appearances and other duties. For your generosity, we will gladly provide you with one film ticket per shift worked and a private post-event thank you party.

Please complete this volunteer form.


Help us document the festival, including parties, Q&A sessions and all other events.  Your photos will be immediately posted online, and you will receive a photo credit.  To be considered, or if you have any questions, please email us with a portfolio (if available) and list of your available gear.
