Thank you for taking the time to learn about AFI DOCS Volunteer opportunities. With the transition to Virtual for the 2020 festival we will not be able to provide volunteer experiences this year. Please check back as we approach the 2021 festival to join the team at AFI DOCS! 

The film festival offers a unique opportunity to connect audiences with world-class documentarians, film subjects, national opinion leaders, public policy experts, and changemakers.

Our dedicated volunteers represent the festival, sharing their enthusiasm for documentaries with patrons from the greater Washington DC area and across the world. Every year, more than 100 volunteers work together to make the festival Washington DC’s premier documentary film exhibition. Our volunteers assist in all areas of the festival – from working at the box office and ushering at screenings to providing key support in terms of social media and photography.
