Reasons to Volunteer With VAFF

VAFF 17 Box Office VAFF 17 Volunteers

The continued success of the Vancouver Asian Film Festival is a reflection of the energy, passion and dedication VAFF volunteers demonstrate year after year. From yearly events, ticket sales,  screening to after parties, volunteers help out with all aspects of the festival, which would not be possible without their valuable contributions. As we celebrate our 18th year, we would like to  say a sincere “thank you” to this amazing and hardworking group.

The Vancouver Asian Film Festival Society is a non-profit organization entirely run by volunteers. We are proud of our volunteers’ dedication and enthusiasm in promoting cultural diversity and playing an essential role in the art scene in Vancouver.

From the Exec down to the event volunteers, we are grateful for the generous support we receive. We strive to create a professional and fun-filled atmosphere, one that values the contribution of time and energy of each and every one of you.

This positive environment brings back many volunteers year after year. Friends join in the fun to enjoy the films and parties.

For this November, we will require more than 80 general volunteers to help with our annual film festival. These positions include, but are not limited to, ticket taking, ticketing & membership sign up, setting up banners/signage, ushering, driving and distributing posters. There is loads to do and there is something for everyone!
