Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 26th Washington Jewish Film Festival!

The Festival would not be possible without our dedicated team of volunteers who help with special events, box office, ushering guests, and so much more. Please visit www.shiftboard.com/WJFF and sign up to become a volunteer. It’s easy and takes less than five minutes! Once you create an account, you can view all the available shifts for our upcoming screenings.

For each shift completed, Festival volunteers earn one (1) free ticket to any regularly priced WJFF screening. Festival volunteers who work six (6) shifts will receive a Festival Pass. Volunteers are also invited to pre-Festival events and a special Volunteer Thank You reception after the Festival.

WJFF CONCIERGE TEAM: As a Concierge Driver you will transport various Festival guests – including Filmmakers, Panelists, and VIPs, to and from their individual film screenings, special events, and any parties they may wish to attend. This role will give you a rare insider view of the festival and the industry behind it.

In addition to the benefit of meeting these talented Filmmakers and guests, as a member of the Concierge Driving Team you will receive a festival pass, which you can use to attend screenings when you are not working.

If this is something you think you might be interested in, please contact Lily Singer, Theater Operations and Guest Hospitality Manager, for more information: lsinger@washingtondcjcc.org 202.777.3240


SUPERSTAR VOLUNTEERS: Have a little extra time, love WJFF, and want to earn a free Season Pass? We are looking for dedicated volunteers to assist with testing films and office tasks. Contact Kaitlin Whitman at kaitlinw@washingtondcjcc.org to learn about opportunities to volunteer in the WJFF office. These opportunities will not appear on the Shiftboard calendar.

FILM SCREENING VOLUNTEERS: Volunteers help with the will call, passing out materials, crowd control, and collecting audience ballots and tickets at the door. Shifts vary in length but generally are 3-5 hours. Sign up on www.shiftboard.com/WJFF.

Please note in many instances you will be allowed to see part of the film during the time which you are volunteering. However, due to volunteering responsibilities, you will likely miss the first and last 15-20min of the screening. Being able to watch the film is not a guarantee.
