Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time and skills to Queer Screen. Volunteers are our lifeblood – and we appreciate your generosity and support in bringing our events to life.

Queer Screen is powered by volunteers at every level from the Board to the cinema ushers, and is wonderfully supported by our community. Our emphasis is on having fun and making new friends, as much as working hard at all our events.

When you sign up as a New Volunteer, you will be able to indicate your areas of interest and one of our staff or board directors will be in touch.

Looking for volunteer cast or crew?

Queer Screen is committed to assisting the production of queer films. Many of our Queer Screen volunteers have skills or connections in the film industry. If you need help in getting a queer production off the ground, we can send your request to our list of volunteers, who will contact you directly, if they can help.

Email volunteers@queerscreen.org.au, giving details of your production and the skills you are looking for.

Key Features

  1. Queer Screen will only send requests to the volunteers who have opted to be put on the cast and crew list.
  2. Queer Screen will not ever give out the list, simply send the request to the list.
  3. Queer Screen will not be involved in any of the subsequent arrangements.
