It’s A Volunteer Experience With All The Boring Parts Cut Out
“It feels like a week-long horror-geek summer camp reunion. There's no artifice, no pretense, no bullshit.” - Scott Weinberg, Cinematical

Fantastic Fest is looking for volunteers (18 years and older, please) for our 2016 festival.  We need you to stand face to face with the celebs and the fans alike to make sure everyone has an Austin-Texas-Alamo-Drafthouse-good-time.

No other festival draws so many eclectic directors, writers, actors and genre film fanatics from across the globe, and mixes them all together with screenings, beer, karaoke, beer, BBQ, beer, trivia, beer, boxing and more beer!  And you can help make it all happen.


Fill in this Volunteer Registration Form and join us for one of these Volunteer Info Sessions at the Highball, located at 1120 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704. At the Info Session, expect a 30 minute presentation about the festival and what to expect as a volunteer in 2016. There will be 15 minutes for Q&A at the end of each session. Attendance is required for new and returning volunteers in order to volunteer for Fantastic Fest 2016. If you cannot attend any of these times, please contact [email protected]
