  • project and chaos management – just saying… no reason
  • box office
  • technical support – “sorry, what is an HDMI?”
  • concession – Serving It Right certificate would be a great asset! [https://www.responsibleservicebc.gov.bc.ca/serving-it-right-course]
  • transportation 🎵 baby, you can drive my car. And maybe I’ll love you 🎵,
  • Photography – can you catch a smile behind a face mask?
  • and more.


10 Day Festival 

Committing to 15 hours of volunteering at the 10 Day Festival earns you 5 free films! You will also receive an invitation to our fabulous EndFest where volunteers and staff can eat, drink and celebrate all of our hard work and end-of-Festival exhaustion. It’s always a great party!


Volunteers for year-round events at the Vic Theatre receive volunteer vouchers that can be used for movies any time of year.
