Welcome to the AFI DOCS 2017 Volunteer homepage. Every year, more than 100 volunteers work together to make the festival Washington DC's premier documentary film event. Our volunteers assist in all areas of the festival — from working at the box office and ushering at screenings to providing key support in a number of areas including social media and photography.

As a volunteer, you are the face of the festival. Your presence and demeanor are what patrons experience as soon as they step into the venue, and your friendliness, cleanliness, flexibility, and problem-solving capabilities go a long way towards shaping their time with AFI DOCS.

Volunteer registration is open for this year's festival. If you wish to join our community, please visit timecounts.org/afidocs.
