Join our Crew

Join the Ottawa Canadian Film Festival Crew and help us organize events featuring outstanding Canadian🇨🇦 Films from across the country.

Volunteering is a great way to support Canadian filmmakers, connect with the community, meet new people and catch a great Canadian flick.

  • As a Crew member you will be the first point of contact with our audiences and filmmakers representing the festival and our city and welcoming audiences and guests to our venue.
  • Ottawa Canadian Film Festival could use your help in a variety of ways from distribution of promotional materials, venue coordination, hospitality, transportation, administrative, box office, photography, social media promotion and more.
  • Volunteers receive complimentary tickets, an invitation to a fantastic post-Festival wrap-up party and the opportunity to interact with filmmakers and patrons throughout the Festival.
  • If your are dependable, have a positive attitude, and the ability to work independently or with a team, we would love to hear from you.

Join the Crew and support Canadian filmmaking and be an integral part of the film festival experience.  Use the contact form at the bottom of this page get in touch with us.

Collaborate with us on a Screening

We are also seeking Collaborators for venues to host our OCanFilmFest Presentsfree short film screening series events.  To maximize access to these screenings we would like to make them free to attend.  As a result, we are seeking collaborators who have access to venues (conference rooms, auditoriums, coffee shops, pubs, for example)  that can be used to host these screenings throughout the city.  Venues with AV setups would be a bonus.  If you have a venue and you would like to collaborate with us on a screening, please contact us using the form below.
