Check our mandate and vision HERE to see if you think Digi60 is the right place for you to volunteer!

Digi60 Filmmakers' Festival, operating in Ottawa since 2004, is seeking board members to help us grow our independent film festival Board. Digi60 was founded on the principle that new and emerging filmmakers would be encouraged to create short films, and be able to screen them in a setting that provided a real world film festival experience, complete with jury evaluation, awards, and gala. We have seen many Digi60 Alumni filmmakers go on to become professional members of the film and television industry. The festival also aims to promote Ottawa as a sustainable film industry destination with desirable cast and crew available for hire. We are a film festival for filmmakers by filmmakers.
