The 2018 Vancouver International Film Festival (“VIFF”) is fast approaching and to make this fine festival function, volunteers are needed. If you love movies, the arts and being a part of an amazing community, then VIFF has a spot for you!


Call for VIFF Volunteers

When: September 27 to October 12, 2018
Where: Various Vancouver venues, centralized at Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour St)

VIFF is looking for volunteers to help fill their diverse Teams and Lead volunteer positions this year.

For 16 days, hundreds of films from around the world will play throughout the city, showcasing unique genres and content. Dozens of directors, writers and actors will be on hand for insightful—and occasionally provocative—post-screening Q&A sessions. The VIFF team of over 1,200 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.

You must be 16 years or older to apply to volunteer. Certain teams have higher age requirements. Before filling out your application, review VIFF 2018 Volunteer Teams.

Volunteer Teams:

Customer Service
Guest Services
Media office
Special Events

The majority of Teams require each volunteer to commit to a minimum of 4 shifts. The majority of shifts are between 3-5 hours. Volunteers interested in Team Lead positions are required to commit to 50 hours.

Volunteer Perks:

  • 1 Volunteer Ticket Voucher for every shift you volunteer. Vouchers can be used in advance for
    any available festival screening. Vouchers are transferrable – so bring a friend!
  • A Volunteer Pass which can be used by you in the Volunteer Stand-by Line
  • For volunteers who are 16 and 17, this pass allows you access to any classified films. Please note
    that under BC classification law, you must be 18 or older to view unclassified films.
  • One invitation to the VIFF Volunteer Appreciation Events
  • Special offers, screenings and promotions exclusive to volunteers.
  • An exclusive Festival Volunteer T-shirt
