Interested in volunteering with us for DCIFF 2018? We’d love to hear from you! Please email us at dcindiefilmfest@gmail.com and let us know a bit about you, what you’re passionate about and why you’re interested in volunteering.

DCIFF is run entirely by passionate volunteers committed to showcasing independent films in our nation’s capitol. Long term volunteers are an essential part of our team and are rewarded with full access to all festival events and a 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 one festival meeting/orientation in January or February 2018. Many of our volunteers go on to become staff members the next year as DCIFF is entirely run by dedicated volunteers.
