The Sixth Annual Water Docs Film Festival is right around the corner, and we need YOU to help us make it another smashing success!

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 amazing guest speakers. The festival not only educates about water issues, it also provides a strong channel for interaction and action. This year Water Docs 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. See this year's film schedule here.

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

  • Box Office
  • Greeting & Ticket Taking
  • Ushering & Mic Running
  • Sales & Info Table
  • VIP Guest Assistance
  • Stagehand Work

We also ask that you attend a brief and fun volunteer training session the week before the festival. We will gratefully accept all the help your schedule permits!

Volunteering with Water Docs is an enriching experience. In gratitude for your generous donation of time, you will receive a sustainably & Canadian-made Me-To-We Festival T-shirt as well as FREE access to the screenings you volunteer at.

An irresistible wave of water-themed documentaries washes over Toronto with the sixth annual Water Docs Film Festival, turning the lens on issues facing local and global water systems, and celebrating water’s magical, mystical, life-giving properties. With a lineup of six feature film screenings and more than a dozen shorts over the five days (March 29 – April 2), the 2017 Water Docs promises to be the best yet!


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our Volunteer Coordinator at Deepest gratitude & see you at the movies!
