Every year, the face of the Vancouver Queer Film Festival is the volunteers! Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, VQFF 2020 has adapted to an online format to ensure we can offer the festival experience to our at-home community.
As we move digital, we continue to need the support of dedicated individuals gifting their time and skills to realize our mission and facilitate the important work of increasing LGBT2Q+ representation in film and society.
Volunteer Perks Include:
- FREE VQFF 2020 volunteer t-shirt
