Volunteer

Welcome to AFI DOCS 2018! AFI DOCS offers the unique opportunity to connect film audiences with national opinion leaders, filmmakers and film subjects. Our Volunteers represent the festival, sharing their enthusiasm for this necessary art form with patrons from the greater Washington DC Community and from across the world. Every year, more than 100 volunteers work together to make the festival Washington DC's premier documentary film event. Our volunteers assist in all areas of the festival – from working at the box office and ushering at screenings to providing key support in a number of areas including social media and photography.

As a volunteer, you are the face of the festival. Your presence and demeanor are what patrons experience as soon as they step into the venue, and your friendliness, cleanliness, flexibility, and problem-solving capabilities go a long way towards shaping their time with AFI DOCS.

Our volunteers are rewarded for their help with vouchers to festival screenings, outside rewards from local businesses and an immersive festival experience. SSL hours are happily provided!

We'd love to have you on board for this year! If you're interested in helping out, please visit our community hub on Timecounts where you can learn more, sign up and begin selecting your shifts: timecounts.org/afidocs.
