DCEFF 2023 Volunteers

Calling all hands! We’re so excited to be reconvening our volunteer corps after three long years — and we’re looking for new members! Volunteer shifts for the 2023 Festival are now live on our Timecounts page.

DCEFF volunteers are warmly welcomed to help our staff with ticketing check-in, ushering, assisting during post-screening discussions, and other support. To show our gratitude, comp codes for free tickets will be shared after each day’s shifts.

Interested? Have additional questions? Email us ( for more information, or sign up today!

DCEFF Screeners

Screeners are an integral part of the Programming Team and are responsible for watching and reviewing film submissions for the festival. Last year, almost 50 Screeners volunteered their time to help us review almost 500 films from 45+ countries. Screeners are expected to review 5-7 hours of films per month, which is typically a mix of about 10 short and feature films.

This process can be done remotely, all you need is access to wifi.

If interested in this opportunity, we’ll post more info on how to get involved in Summer 2023.
