Become a Volunteer!
Reel Asian® is always looking for committed, enthusiastic, energetic and friendly volunteers to help us with our film festival and year-round events. Volunteering with Reel Asian is a fantastic way to meet others who are interested in film and Asian culture, and it gives you a closer look into the production of a community-based film and video festival.
The 22nd edition of Reel Asian will be held from November 8-16, 2018. The deadline to apply to volunteer for the 2018 festival is October 17th. Applications received after this date may take longer than normal to process and will not be considered for the 2018 festival.
