Get Involved


Cinema Paradiso offers two theater locations for your volunteering efforts. One in Ft. Lauderdale and the other in Hollywood, FL. Please contact for more info on how to become involved with our theater year-round. 

The FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (FLIFF) at Cinema Paradiso will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year and we would like you to be part of the fun and excitement. We're arranging an entirely new approach to the already amazing festival you've enjoyed throughout the years...
SAVE THE DATE: November 6-22, 2015. We will be in need of amazing volunteers leading up to the festival for out of this world events, so get in touch now to start planning your time. 

Cinema Paradiso has been expanding its schedule during regular daily operations for both its Hollywood and Ft. Lauderdale, FL theaters.  Not only have we been adding more movies, we have increased the number of special events that are related to the films being presented to our membership group and the general public. 

This increase in events and special features, many of which are free to members only, or members and the public, requires sufficient volunteers on hand to handle ticket processing, Will Call table, ushering, bar-tending, food services and some occasional light duty office tasks.


Volunteers enjoy terrific benefits, including participation in our fun- filled activities, meeting celebrities and engaging in film-lovers county wide, and seeing outstanding films. You can also expect to work short shifts (usually not more than four hours).  Count on getting a behind- the-scenes view of  festivals, independent art houses and the movie business in general.  You will meet many new people in and out of the film business and, most of all, you will be in a work environment that is both exhilarating and entertaining
If you would like to become one of our efficient and dedicated members of Cinema Paradiso and FLIFF, please complete the attached application. 
Thanks from all of us at Cinema Paradiso and FLIFF!

The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival is a not-for-profit organization serving South Florida with the best value in great entertainment.
