Volunteering, Internships, & Careers

The Chicago Latino Film Festival (CLFF) is produced every April by the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC), a pan-Latino, nonprofit, multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to developing, promoting and increasing awareness of Latino culture among Latinos and other communities by presenting a wide variety of art forms. The Chicago Latino Film Festival began in 1985 with 14 films projected onto a concrete wall for 500 viewers, and has now grown into the ILCC, which was originally founded as Chicago Latino Cinema.

This event is the longest-running exclusively Latino Film Festival in the country and is an important platform to lend a voice to Latino filmmakers from around the world.

As a not-for-profit organization, we depend on the help and work of talented interns and freelancers that wish to learn the multiple aspects of the film festival through content creation, administrative management, and artist and membership support. THERE ARE NO JOB OR INTERN POSITIONS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE


For 10 exciting days, the 39th Chicago Latino Film Festival welcomes more than 35,000 film enthusiasts and film representatives from all over Latin America, Spain, Portugal and the United States. We’ll need a team of volunteers to make the festival a remarkable experience for all our guests. Get involved, meet new people, and discover the latest in Latino cinema!

All new volunteers must attend one of the meetings listed below. Returning volunteers are not required to attend, but recommended. Those interested in interpreting MUST attend one day as there is a workshop. Please reserve your attendance through the link below.
