KCFF is looking for a small but mighty group of committed volunteers to join in the venture as we move back to an in-person Festival for 2022. If you have a passion for film (or just a passion for talking to people) and you want to join our team for March 3-6, 2022, fill out the interest form below. 


Due to the size and demands of the Festival this year, we will be asking a smaller number of volunteers to commit to more hours over the week of the Fest. This allows us to ensure all volunteers are properly versed on safety measures and feel comfortable and confident in the public environments.


An ideal KCFF volunteer is excited by the opportunity to experience Canadian films and enthusiastic about speaking to audience members and other guests. Volunteers will have the support of the on-site student, venue and leadership staff of KCFF to ensure the experience runs smoothly.


Volunteers typically work a few 3-5 hour shifts per festival (the average commitment is approximately 12 hours total). We ask that anyone who is interested in being considered for a volunteer position fill out our volunteer interest form below.
