We welcome all those interested in volunteering for DCIFF 2014 to attend one of  two meetings at public libraries in Washington DC in January 2014.  Attending a volunteer meeting is mandatory so that you can understand our festival and decide if this opportunity is for you. Volunteers earn film watching and workshop attendance hours by working at the festival and of course can enjoy our social events as well.  Many of our volunteers go on to become staff members the next year as DCIFF is entirely run by dedicated volunteers.

If interested, please email admin@dciff.org and explain who you are, what you could do as a volunteer and why you want to do this!


Long term festival volunteers are part of our team and are rewarded with full access to all festival events and a real job description on our team list. As a full festival volunteer you attend all staff meetings and work on a specific area from now to and through the festival.  We look for enthusiasm, staying power and willingness to work alone as well as with the team.

Festival Program volunteers work hours in exchange for equivalent hours attending events/watching films. All volunteers must attend 2 festival meetings/orientations in January 2014.

Thank you!
