We would like to officially invite you to return as a Volunteer for this year’s Festival, which runs September 5–15, 2019! Please note that, as a returning TIFF Volunteer, you are not required to reapply via our online application form.
Please take the time to read this information and follow the steps carefully. You will need to follow all required steps below in order to confirm your interest.
Online orientation: Once again for 2019, we will be offering Festival orientation online, giving you access from the comfort of your home or office so you can save a trip to TIFF Bell Lightbox. Please note that online orientation will be available from Friday, July 12 to Monday, July 22, 2019, and must be viewed within this time frame. It will take approximately an hour and 15 minutes to complete. If you would prefer to attend an in-person orientation session, dates will be available during the month of July. A final orientation session will be held during the weekend prior to the start of the Festival for those who are unable to attend an earlier orientation date.
Volunteers must select which orientation option they would like to complete for the year. Details on doing so can be found below. You must choose one of the two options at this time.
To indicate your interest in volunteering for the 2019 Festival, please follow these instructions:
Deadline: The deadline to indicate your interest in volunteering for the 2019 Festival is Thursday, May 30, 2019. We cannot guarantee a spot after this date.
Next step: On Monday, June 3, 2019 (after the deadline to indicate your interest), you will receive an email providing you with instructions on online orientation OR how to sign up for your in-person orientation session. Completion of orientation is mandatory for all returning Volunteers.
Again this year, we’re offering a referral program for Volunteers who help us get the word out to their friends and family about volunteering for TIFF. If you know someone who would make a great Volunteer, get them to fill out our application at tiff.net/volunteer and you will receive exclusive rewards. For more information on this initiative, visit the Volunteer Hub.
If you haven’t already, be sure to join our TIFF Volunteer Facebook group to connect with your fellow Volunteers and to receive exclusive updates, access to exciting rewards, and much more.
If you have any questions about volunteering for the 2019 Festival, please don’t hesitate to contact the Volunteer Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 416-934-5846. We can’t wait to see you soon and look forward to having the entire TIFF Volunteer family back in action!
