Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival has unveiled the official image for its 34th edition. Designed in collaboration with Sudbury firm 50 Carleton, the image evokes the official tagline of this year’s festival, “Birds of a Feather”, which refers to the local film-lovers who “flock together” every year at Cinéfest.

Cinéfest Sudbury is looking for a dedicated and enthusiastic group of volunteers to assist in providing patrons and industry guests the event they have come to love.

Whether you are a volunteer from previous years or a brand-new volunteer looking to experience one of Northern Ontario’s largest events, organizers would love your help.

With the festival’s continued growth year after year, Cinéfest Sudbury exhibits an increasingly large slate of prestige Canadian and international films, and acts as a host to patrons and industry guests from around the world, said a press release.

As such, it is important that volunteers serve as ambassadors for both the festival and the City of Greater Sudbury.

Volunteer positions available include Box Office Support, Decorator, Host/Hostess, Photographer, Server/Bartender, Security, Technical Support/Customer Service, Usher, and more.

Interested applicants are encouraged to visit to review all available volunteer positions and apply to become a volunteer at the 34th edition of Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival. 

Applications will also be available at the Cinéfest Sudbury office, located at 40 Larch Street, Unit 103. Volunteers will also receive one complimentary ticket to a film screening of their choice for each shift they are able to donate their time for.

Agilis Networks is the official 2022 Volunteer Sponsor of Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival, which will run Sept. 17-25.
