Films at the Gate 2011 is just around the corner, and Street Lab is looking for production volunteers! Here’s a post that just went up at seeking volunteers to work alongside Volunteer Producer Sam Davol and other community members on the lot:

Street Lab, Inc, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is seeking voluntees to help us transform a vacant lot in Boston’s Chinatown into a safe, inviting, outdoor Chinese-language cinema for four nights August 25-28, 2011. For the past five years, we have produced Films at the Gate, a community event that creates a free, outdoor theater, showing Kung-Fu and classic Chinese-language films in downtown Boston. Films at the Gate is a collaborative project of Street Lab, film curator Jean Lukitsh, and the Asian Community Development Corporation.

This year, Street Lab is seeking a small group of energetic, skilled individuals to volunteer as a team under Street Lab’s co-director and event producer Sam Davol to help him produce the event. Tasks include: create and edit intro video reels, plan A/V production, set up and strike A/V equipment including PA, projector, and screen, and help run video and audio throughout the evening

The ideal candidate will have skills and experience with audio/visual production, and a willingness to work with Sam in all aspect of producing an outdoor, community event. Chinese language skills a plus but not required. This is a roll-up-your-sleeves kind of work environment, and all volunteers at the event are expected to handle a wide variety of tasks while being professional, good humored, and respectful to our community audience.

Interested candidates should email Please attach a resume or description of your experience, and let him know why you are interested in volunteering at Films at  the Gate. Thanks!
