"Our volunteers' love, passion and support of film help us share the best of Canadian and international cinema with our beautiful city." – Piers Handling, TIFF Director & CEO

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.
Interested in volunteering with us?
Your volunteer journey begins at the Toronto International Film Festival  where you can be a part of the world's leading public film festival, bringing the best in Canadian and international cinema to Toronto every September.

After participating with the Festival, volunteers will have the opportunity to join us year-round at TIFF Bell Lightbox as part of the many teams that support our programming 365 days a year and for the TIFF Kids International Film Festival, one of the world's premier film festivals for children ages 3 to 13, held every April.

Our 2016 Festival Volunteer Application is now open. Apply now!
