Dear VLAFF Volunteers… returning and new!!

VLAFF could not happen without the amazing volunteers who each year play a crucial role in putting on the festival. We have lots of volunteer positions available from September 7 – 17. Volunteer perks include a festival t-shirt, one voucher for every two hours worked to watch a film, and our unending gratitude for helping make the festival a big success!

In 2023, we will be hosting a full lineup of in-person screenings with some very special guests in attendance at The Cinematheque, Cineworks, and SFU Woodward’s Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema, as well as receptions, parties, and live music. It’s going to be fabulous!

If you are interested in joining this fantastic community of dedicated volunteers please fill out the VOLUNTEER APPLICATION!

If you have any questions, feel free to email our Volunteer Coordinator, Dani Rodríguez, at

Looking forward to celebrating 21 years with you!
