As a charitable cultural organization, TIFF simply couldn't offer such a broad range of initiatives without the impressive skills and commitment of our Volunteers. We are grateful for the ongoing contribution made by our many Volunteer teams.
Want to be part of the world’s leading public film festival? Each September, the Toronto International Film Festival brings the best in Canadian and international cinema to theatres around Toronto. If you’re 18 years of age or older, you can become part of the dedicated team of Festival Volunteers who help make it all happen!
Those who successfully complete their Volunteer commitment during the Festival will have the option of receiving postings for year-round Volunteer opportunities at TIFF Bell Lightbox to support our programming all year long.
If you are between the ages of 14 and 17 and interested in joining our Youth Volunteer Programme, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified when our online application is available. Recruitment for this team typically takes place in December.
Limiting the spread of COVID-19 and maintaining the health and safety of Volunteers is a top priority. As a result, we have decided we will not be recruiting Volunteers to fill Volunteer positions at the 2020 Festival. We hope you will join us for the next edition of the Toronto International Film Festival. We will begin recruitment in the spring of 2021. If you are interested in hearing about future volunteer opportunities, please subscribe to our TIFF Volunteer Alerts below for updates via email.
Festival Volunteers receive access to films at TIFF, exclusive discounts, the chance to make new friends, and the feeling that you helped make it all happen!

Our talented and dedicated Volunteers are vital to the success of the Festival each year. Festival Volunteers assist in a variety of roles in the following areas:
TIFF is proud to be a contributing member of VAACT, a program to recognize volunteers who support multiple arts and culture events and festivals throughout the year in the City of Toronto. Awards are given to Volunteers who complete the minimum requirements with at least four participating VAACT organizations throughout the year. VAACT culminates each year on International Volunteer Day (December 5) with an awards ceremony to acknowledge and thank our Volunteers for their contributions in making Toronto a more vibrant, cultural city.
