Interested in volunteering at CIFF for our 25th anniversary? sign-ups are open now!

Why Volunteer?

The Calgary International Film Festival is thrilled to welcome a wonderful base of dedicated volunteers who donate their time and energy, year after year to support Calgary's arts community. Our yearly fall festival would not be possible without the generous support of film lovers like you!

Volunteers enjoy a host of exclusive benefits such as free access to the most anticipated films in our line-up, tickets to select year-round CIFF events and a first-hand, behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of Alberta's largest film festival.

CIFF also celebrates its hard-working volunteers following our 11-day cinematic extravaganza with a staff and volunteer party featuring free drinks, food and a chance to create meaningful connections with fellow volunteers and staff members.
