Any Volunteers?

The seventh annual Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is less than three months away, but organizers are still looking to fill some staff positions.

The sales coordinator will also be responsible for supervising a team of salespeople. This is a paid position. Those interested are asked to forward their résumés to as soon as possible. On the volunteer side of things, SWGLFF is looking to fill several unpaid positions in the following categories: grant writers, marketing, community outreach, planning committee, volunteer coordinator, and graphic and website design. Internships are available for college credit, and you do get to see a lot of free films. For more information, send an e-mail to
