Interested in volunteering with us for DCIFF 2023 (March 1-5)? We’d love to hear from you! Please email us at dcindiefilmfest@gmail.com with a short paragraph about you, what you’re passionate about and why you’re interested in volunteering. DCIFF 2023 is an in-person festival with some virtual offerings.

DCIFF is run entirely by volunteers committed to showcasing independent films in our nation’s capital. Longterm volunteer-staff positions usually result from volunteering one year and then becoming a staff member the next year. We are currently looking for volunteers and interns to work in:

Feature/Documentary outreach and partnerships

Helping to set up panels and workshops (three position)

Event-only festival program volunteer positions start in early March 2023 with some training: all event volunteers must attend one online training session (February 22nd) .

Longterm volunteer-staff 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. You attend all staff meetings and work on a specific area from now through the festival. We look for enthusiasm, staying power and willingness to work alone as well as with the team. Starting NOW!

Short-term festival program volunteers work hours in exchange for equivalent hours attending events/watching films. All volunteers must attend one festival meeting/orientation on February 22, 2023 by Zoom. Many of our volunteers go on to become staff members the next year.
