Get Involved


Our Volunteers are a key force behind our mission to celebrate the work of emerging filmmakers. They support a broad range of initiatives from our annual Festival in September to our year-round programming, our community outreach initiatives, and much more.

Our youth volunteer program is part of SLFF’s community initiative & education program. We partner with local schools to give young creatives an opportunity to be a part of a Film Festival.
