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!
