Volunteering Opportunities with Sheffield Doc/Fest

Thank you to everyone who was part of the 2019 Doc/Crew Volunteer Programme. You played a vital role in putting on one of our best festivals yet, and we couldn't do it without you! If you have any feedback on how we can improve the Doc/Crew experience for you, or just want to tell us how much you miss us, please get in touch at volunteer [at] sheffdocfest.com.

Applications for Doc/Crew 2020 will open on Mon 24 Feb! 

In the meantime, hear from our Alternative Realities 2019 volunteers about their experience:


Equal Opportunities Statement

Our volunteer opportunities are like our festival, open to all.

Sheffield Doc/Fest believes that documentaries, and those working in the arts and in media – including ourselves - have a part to play in creating a society which is proud of its diversity and its multi-cultural heritage.

Doc/Fest’s programme-centred approach to inclusiveness puts diversity at the forefront of its activity. Through the documentaries we showcase and the talent we develop, we aim to celebrate diversity, promote equality, and challenge discrimination.

Equally, we are committed to providing a welcoming, accessible, inclusive and positive experience for all festival attendees, and for all team members and volunteers – regardless of age, disability, sex, gender, sexuality, marital/civil partnership status, pregnancy/maternity/paternity, race, religion/belief, or socio-economic background. We’re proud to be a Disability Confident committed employer, supporting disabled people in the workplace.
