Join an amazing group of volunteers who lend their time and energy to the Arab Film and Media Institute, working to enrich the cultural landscape and the lives of its audiences via cinematic programming—and get an exciting glimpse behind the scenes while you’re at it.

Year-round, AFMI seeks volunteers to share their skills whether they’re engaging with the public or docents or helping our office staff with a variety of administrative tasks. Annual events like the Arab Film Festival require even more assistance in areas ranging from customer service and hospitality to transportation and outreach.

Internships are also available for current students or recent graduates. Fill out the form below and we’ll get in touch shortly. Thank you.
