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 (21 years and older, please) for our 2018 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.

FOR FF2018, WE'VE STILL GOT EVENING SHIFTS AVAILABLE (and not a whole lot else). SO...if you crave the darkness and hate garlic, come play with us!

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, karaoke, gross-out contests, beer, BBQ, trivia, podcasts, one-on-one battles to the death (of honor), dark and mystical musical acts, pillow fights, board games, and more!  And you can help make it all happen.


First, fill out this Volunteer Registration Form! Then, email [email protected]. We will reply to you with details on shifts, perks, everything you need to know as a Fantastic Fest volunteer.

This year’s festival takes place September 20th – 27th, 2018.  Keep an eye on this page for more information about the festival. And don’t forget to check us out on Facebook and Twitter!
