WORK WITH US

The Toronto Food Film Fest is seeking to expand its team. We are looking for qualified coordinators to work and help grow our festival.

Our mission is to celebrate the art of independent film and the local food scene operating using equitable and environmentally sustainable practices. We promote an inclusive community and advancement opportunities for filmmakers and vendors.

 

This is primarily done through an annual multi-day festival, this year taking place Oct 14–17, 2022. The festival is more than just a film festival: we offer an array of additional programming including panels, workshops, tastings, parties, book readings, dinners, a screen to plate experience and more. Come join our team!

**International students are not eligible participants. International students include anyone who is temporarily in Canada for studies and who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada. Youth awaiting a refugee status ruling, as well as those who hold a temporary visitor visa, youth visa or work visa are ineligible. As the objective of the Canada Summer Jobs program is to support youth entering the Canadian labour market, the temporary nature of an international student’s time in Canada does not allow for a long-term connection to the labour market.

With the support of Canada Summer Jobs program through the government of Canada, Toronto Food Film Fest is offering youth mentorship and an opportunity to develop and improve skills.
