Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 23rd Annual Washington Jewish Film Festival, which will be held January 3-13, 2013. Please fill out the form below to let us know about your availability and interests and we will match your preferences with our needs. 

VOLUNTEER BENEFITS: For each shift worked, volunteers earn 1 free ticket. Those able to work 4 or more shifts will earn a full festival pass (pass admission not good for Opening/Closing/Spotlight/Pubcrawl).

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will not be able to watch ANY of the film that screens during your volunteer shift. No Exceptions. Please be careful not to sign up for a volunteer shift during a time when you're hoping to see a film.



 It’s fun to be a Festival Volunteer! You get to know terrific people in your community and appreciate film together. And, of course, there’s always the free film tickets…

For every full shift (up to 3) that you work as a volunteer, you will get 1 voucher for a ticket to the film of your choice, excluding Opening, Closing and Centerpiece Nights and sold-out screenings. Volunteers who work 4 or more shifts receive 1 full festival pass, which is good for any screening excluding Opening, Closing and Centerpiece nights, and sold-out screenings. There is no guarantee of seating as a standby at any screening.

Anytime a volunteer would like, you can receive a pass for 2 to any WJFF Year-Round screening held at the DCJCC.  Just request the year-round pass instead of the Festival ticket. This guarantees that even volunteers working the last few days of the Festival will get a film benefit!

Keep in mind when selecting the shifts you want to work that you will not be able to see the film that is screening during the shift that you are working.
