Why should you become a TIFF volunteer?


We can tell you that TIFF is an experience you must have this summer! But we'd better let you see how last year's volunteers described this experience:

"Wonderful. It was a great week in which I met beautiful people, in which I forgot absolutely everything: worries, time, sleep, sometimes food :). I felt great and I'm coming back with the same enthusiasm and joy next year (hoping you'll receive me) "

"Work, fun and seriousness. It's a lot of work to get the festival up and running so that everything goes well, but together with the team of volunteers, we found ways to make our work entertaining. No matter how much we laugh and joke, everyone is dedicated and involved. ”

"It was my first volunteer experience and I was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming team and the great atmosphere"

"I think this year's organization was perfect. I didn't have any unpleasant moments, everything was super professional and just amazing. "

"My role as Subtitle MC gave me pure pleasure, being wonderful and important at the same time. I've seen a lot of great movies and I'm proud to be part of the team that helped the audience enjoy the screening. "

"I was sorry that it wasn't until the last few days that I had the courage to socialize more openly, because the people I socialized with pleasantly surprised me."

The next edition will take place between June 9 and 18, 2023, and we can't wait to see you (again)!
