We are accepting volunteers for 2017.


Register now!

If you want to join a devoted team of vibrant, fun-loving film enthusiasts, please consider joining the GFF team as we set out to transform the way people see the world through film!

As a charitable, not-for-profit, cultural organization, GFF has always depended on the generosity of our diverse team of volunteers. We are grateful for the considerable contributions made by our volunteers every year and know that we could not launch this Festival without their dedication and support.

Volunteers donate their valuable time to help make the Gimli Film Festival a thriving environment for independent filmmakers to share their stories. Together we’re creating a place and a platform for independent film to reach beyond the shores of Lake Winnipeg.

Volunteers will be involved in…

  • Site Management
  • Box Office
  • Guest Services
  • Hospitality
  • Venue Operations
  • Set Up and Tear Down
  • Transportation
  • and More!

For a minimum of 12 hours of volunteer work, volunteers are provided with the following:

  • One GFF volunteer film pass (Volunteers are asked to please prioritize paying customers over their own entry to films)
  • Volunteer T-shirt (provided by Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries)
  • Invitation to opening and awards receptions
  • GFF Volunteer Room: coffee service, snacks and food during the Festival
  • An invitation to the volunteer windup

Register here to volunteer for the 2017 Gimli Film Festival!
