Our talented and dedicated volunteers are the heart of our film festival and are vital to the success of the event every year. Festival Volunteers assist in a variety of roles in the following areas:

Reception & Hospitality | front-of-house assistance including, but not limited to, managing lineups, scanning tickets and encouraging the public to vote.
Media Team | provide event coverage on the red carpet. 
Video Editors | assist at Docville on September 23rd where festival goers will make a western movie in a day. A team of editors will stitch together a film which will be featured at the end of the day.   
Setup/Technical Assitance | assist on setting up and dismantling signage, backdrops, red carpet and more. 

In exchange for volunteering at our festival, all volunteers receive:

  • One-of-a-kind t-shirt!
  • Screening vouchers to see films! 
  • The opportunity to meet and greet some of the most interesting filmmakers, film lovers, community members and community leaders!
