As a volunteer-powered group, we depend on two types of volunteers: 1) for the film festival, and 2) for our year-round planning team, tackling tasks large and small and steering the Ecologos/Water Docs boat.

Help create our programs

Help us plan and execute our programs running throughout the year. You can help extend the reach of Ecologos programs by getting the word out through social and traditional media, organizing exciting community events, tapping new networks, and finding interested teachers.  

Volunteer with the festival

Water Docs is a documentary film festival about all things water. We screen both feature and short films, and hold live discussions with directors and other guest speakers. The festival not only educates about water issues, it provides a strong channel for action. This year the film festival runs from March 29 to April 2 at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema (near Bloor & Bathurst).

As a charitable organization, Ecologos could not run the Water Docs Film Festival without the commitment of our volunteers. We are incredibly grateful for the time and energy you provide us to make Water Docs a reality.

One Ecologos volunteer's story – why she began volunteering with the organization, more than five years ago, and why she has continued her involvement.

We are currently accepting volunteers from different backgrounds to help with:

  • Box Office
  • Greeting & Ticket Taking
  • Ushering & Mic Running
  • Sales
  • Event Photography (Experienced)
  • VIP Guest Assistance
  • Stagehand Work
  • Info Table

Your time commitments would be the afternoon and evening time slots for the dates you can attend. We also ask that you attend a volunteer training session the week before the festival. We will gratefully accept all the help your schedule permits!

Submit your application to volunteer and our Volunteer Engagement Co-ordinator will be in touch soon.

If you have any questions about volunteering at Water Docs, please email our Volunteer Engagement Co-ordinator.
