Volunteer With qFLIX Today

Open Call For Crew Happening NOW!

Get Started!

qFLIX’s first festival, in 2014, was just 5-days long and screened 35 films, we now produce 4 festivals, with 85 days of programming, and over 300 new and independent LGBTQ+ films from around the world.

All this success has been accomplished by an all-volunteer production team, who have embraced qFLIX’s mission as their own.

As a mission driven family of LGBTQ+ film festivals, we believe that our stories are the soul of our community and are best expressed in the arts. As such, these stories must be shared far and wide.  Our stories gathered from around the world, educate, empower, entertain, and inspire a people to move further towards equality, and into a world that is not simply diverse and inclusive, but one that creates a sense of belonging for all LGBTQ+ people.

We recognize and acknowledge the truth that qFLIX is fully fueled by the time, talent, expertise, dedication, and passion of our volunteers. We respectfully ask that you please consider joining our production crew to help continue the tradition of LGBTQ+ film in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Your commitment is welcomed, needed, and always appreciated.
