Concordia Film Festival: CFF seeks new team members!



Attention Film Studies, Animation, Production, and Concordia students:

The Concordia Film Festival is looking for new and energetic members to join our team!

The Concordia Film Festival is the oldest and largest student-run film festival in North America. The festival is a four-day event that runs during the month of May at the end of each academic year. We screen films made by Concordia Film Production and Animation students and host a wide array of talks and special exhibition screenings.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 49th edition of the CFF will be taking the hybrid form of online and in-person events!

Although all positions are volunteer-based, they are ESSENTIAL in ensuring that the committee executes a successful 49th festival. The rewarding experience opens many doors and opportunities to aspects within the Concordia community and the greater film community in Montreal and Canada. As well as looking great on your CV! This is an opportunity to get involved with the making of a Film Festival and create connections with the film community!!

Applications are due September 27th by 11:55PM.
