Share your love of films and volunteer at Filmfest DC

We are currently looking for volunteers to assist us in theaters around the DC Metro area during our 32nd annual festival this April 19 - 29. Volunteer shifts last between 4-5 hours. They take place during weeknights after 5:30pm and starting after 12 noon on weekends.

We realize just how important volunteers are to the success of the Filmfest every year and we are grateful for the interest you’ve shown. Complete an application on our website to volunteer today!

In exchange for two completed shifts, you get a complimentary ticket to watch one of the films and a t-shirt to identify you to festival goers! Because of the nature of the tasks required, we recommend you volunteer at a different date than the film you wish to watch, so you can enjoy the film in its entirety.

Filmfest DC is grateful for our incredible team of volunteers who make our event so fantastic from year to year! We would not be able to present Filmfest DC without the help of our community. Volunteers help us usher guests inside theaters, help with the box office, collect tickets, hand out and receive ballots for audience choice awards and much more.

We will be getting in touch with our volunteer closer to the festival to schedule some orientation events in person.

Any additional questions can be sent directly to Thank you and we look forward to working with you this year.

- Carolina Hernandez and Kristin Van Meerbeke
