Do you want to be a part of the SWIFF team? Well now you can!

Volunteers are needed to assist in all areas of the South Western International Film Festival –from the theatre entrances to the concerts. Of course, there are exciting benefits such as being among the first audiences to see world premieres of the best new independent films. But the real benefits of volunteering aren’t things, or even films–they’re the experiences. If you’re ready for a one-of-a-kind experience, apply to join us in Sarnia this November! Send an email to contact us and tell us why you should be a SWIFF volunteer!
