Help make this year’s San Diego Asian Film Festival season a success! In addition to meeting people who share an interest in independent voices and stories by and about Asian and Pacific Islander communities around the world, volunteering with Pacific Arts Movement is an excellent way to serve San Diego’s arts and culture community and to fulfill volunteerism hours.

We’re currently recruiting volunteers for the 13th SDAFF Spring Showcase. Sign up on your own or reach out to coordinate a volunteer group. We’d love to have you!

COVID 19 Protocols. Pac Arts highly recommends that all staff, contractors, and volunteers be fully vaccinated and mask indoors.

To sign up for volunteer shifts when they’re available, please first register yourself in our Volunteer database with the following in mind:

Volunteer groups from local organizations are invaluable to the operation of our major events, including SDAFF Spring Showcase. Have your company listed as an in-kind sponsor by coordinating a volunteer group of four or more employees to cover a four-hour shift during the festival!
