Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need.
– Gillian Anderson

Austin Film Meet was built entirely with volunteer support. We absolutely could not exist without our generous volunteers. 

Volunteering is an excellent way to get connected quickly to our community. 

We have volunteer positions of all kinds, with low and high time commitments in a variety of areas, both in-person and remote. 

Not only will you be giving back to a wonderful organization, but you’ll also enjoy a complimentary membership as long as you’re a volunteer.
