Volunteers are an essential and valued part of the Vancouver International Film Festival. They help to create successful world class events year-after-year. Our team of over 1200 volunteers, in collaboration with staff and directors, create an internationally renowned and appreciative space for filmmakers and audience members to share their love of film and the film industry. We are looking for Volunteers 16+ to help fill our diverse Teams and Lead volunteer positions this year. If you love movies, the arts, and being a part of an amazing community - then we have a spot for you!
Event Dates: September 26th to October 11th. Positions available beginning mid-August.
