Help Plan a Film Festival

    Toronto, ON


Toronto Youth Shorts is Ontario's largest youth-based film festival run by a volunteer group and held in Toronto every year. The festival offers young filmmakers from the region a chance to showcase their work to a captive audience learning from one another and engaging experienced working professionals. 

This year is Toronto Youth Shorts' 10th anniversary and we are seeking long-term dedicated volunteers to assist with the planning and execution of this major milestone, to be held in September 2018 in downtown Toronto.

We are looking to add three more young professionals as members to our team in the areas of marketing, fundraising, and film programming. If you have skills in any of those areas and are interested in applying them to a small but growing film festival celebrated by the community, this is a great opportunity for you.

The commitment for the team is to meet once every few weeks to plan the film festival. In between that, the team works on their own time in consultation with the Festival Director in accomplishing tasks and goals as set out by the team during the meetings. Our flexible schedule allows for candidates to work or study while simultaneously performing the duties required by the festival. 

If you are interested in helping out at this year's festival, please write to Henry Wong, Festival Director at torontoyouthshorts@gmail.com along with a cover letter and resume with 2018 Festival Executive in the subject line. In your cover letter, please describe in detail any practical experience you have in promotions and marketing for volunteer-based groups or non-profits. 

Please note, the festival is completely volunteer run and all positions are non-paid. However, work performed can go towards course credit, school projects, or other volunteer requirements (inquire more for details). 

This is a great opportunity to expand your portfolio and really flexible for university of college students or recent grads looking to gain some new experience. We can accommodate your study schedule as well.  Serious and committed inquiries only please.
