DCEFF Screeners

We are looking for people to watch and review films – both shorts and features – for our 2018 Festival. All the work will be done remotely and is handled through the online platform, FilmFreeway.

Please check back in May for further information on becoming a DCEFF Screener.

If you have any questions please contact Molly Berg, Programming Manager, at molly@dceff.org.

Festival Volunteers

There are so many new and exciting changes in store for 2017 Festival volunteers — including a completely new rewards-based Volunteer Community that honors your time and commitment with on-site snacks, restaurant and coffee vouchers — and a few major prize packages that include invitations to studio sneak peek screenings, special museum tours, and gift cards to area retailers.

We are also implementing a new 1:1 work/watch program: for every volunteer shift you complete, you will receive one voucher to watch selected films during the festival, or at one of our year-round events.

Also, some shifts are labeled as DOUBLE CREDIT — working these shifts will give you additional credits to earn rewards faster. Learn more and sign up here.

Year-round Volunteers

DCEFF is a year-round endeavor that holds film screenings and special events throughout the year. In addition to assisting with these events, volunteers can work with DCEFF staff in a number of key areas, such as Fundraising, Public Relations, Media Production, Administration, and Programming.

If you’re a budding photographer or one that is generous with your time and skills, consider volunteering as a photographer and/or videographer for one of our screenings or events.
