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

This is primarily done through an annual multi-day festival, this year taking place Oct 1– 4. The festival of course 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!
