DOXA prides itself on being an iconic cultural event for Vancouver, and a growing festival on the world scene. With a small core team working year-round and VanPodFest in the extended season, we bring on dedicated volunteers to help activate all the moving parts of the festival itself. We foster a culture of trust, strong work ethic, reliability, and quality. All team members are expected to uphold high standards of customer service and presentation value. We welcome returning and brand-new volunteers alike. Festival volunteers are people who love film, love community engagement, love special events, and love DOXA. If you fit the bill, please apply!
