VOLUNTEERS needed for Banff World Media Festival!!


  • Start Date: Sunday, 07 June 2015
  • End Date: Wednesday, 10 June 2015


The Banff World Media Festival (BANFF) is the world's foremost television and digital media content creation event. BANFF will bring together over a thousand television professionals from dozens of countries. In a conference setting at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, the Festival recognizes industry excellence through the Rockie Awards Gala; features provocative sessions and informative master classes; and provides a global platform for networking, discussion and debate of current industry issues. It also enables budding writers and creators to pitch fresh ideas to busy - and typically inaccessible - senior producers and network executives through one-on-one meetings.

A not-for-profit organization, the Banff World Media Festival is owned by the Banff Media Festival Foundation, which has a mandate to recognize, develop, celebrate and encourage excellence in television programming within Canada and around the world. As a beneficial catalyst for growth and prosperity in Canada's television industry, BANFF could not happen without our invaluable team of volunteers!

The event will take place Sunday June 7th until Wednesday June 10th.

  • Guest Relations
  • Branding Staff
  • Pass & Ticket Controllers
  • Room Producers
  • Pre-festival Office Help
  • Conference Runners
  • Sponsor Material Distributors

All applications are reviewed in connection with available roles and schedule.

Perks: All volunteers will receive a BANFF swag bag, access to the Festival (when not on shift), refreshments and snacks and networking opportunities.

A bit of history...

AYV (Alberta's YouthVOLUNTEER! Society) was started in 2006 by some awesome peeps not unlike yourselves. They were looking to volunteer but couldn't find any information on how to do it. Being go getters they decided that Alberta needed an organization just for youth to help us find our own information and opportunities!  AYV is an organization run by youth for youth!
