Volunteer With Us

The New York International Children’s Film Festival will be returning this year during the first two weekends in March! We're excited to be back in multiple venues this year. While those details are still being finalized, we'd like to know if you're available to join us on March 3rd, 4th, and 5th and March 10th, 11th, and 12th.

We will confirm specific shift times by the end of February once our full schedule has been confirmed. For now, we'd like to get a general idea of your availability for our festival weekend.

NYICFF volunteers are essential to bringing the Festival to life every year. We are looking for individuals who are dedicated to delivering culturally rich film experiences for young audiences.

Our talented volunteers are critical to the Festival's success and are involved with many elements including:
- Vaccination card check
- Theater management and ticketing
- Merchandise
- Special events and activities
- Interacting with patrons (such as young people, parents, filmmakers & film enthusiasts)

- Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.
- Volunteers must provide proof of vaccination (including booster shot)
- Volunteers must be available for at least three (3) shifts during the Festival and attend one (1) orientation session.

If your availability changes prior to the Festival (or if you have any other questions/concerns), please email us at operations@nyicff.org
