Irish Film Festival of Ottawa

Irish Film Festival Ottawa is a non-profit organization that celebrates Irish culture, language, humour and history through the modern medium of film. Founded in March 2014, the festival showcases recent films of all genres from Irish filmmakers in a three-day event that also incorporates Irish music, dance, and other arts. 


Our vision is to bring Irish film and filmmakers to Ottawa to support and promote Irish culture for the benefit of both Ottawa’s Irish community and the local population, and to inspire and develop Ottawa’s local film-making community. The festival provides a medium through which it is possible to share and promote Irish heritage to not only the Irish Diaspora but Canadians of all ethnicities who wish to learn more about Ireland, its people and its culture.

The festival would not be possible without a dedicated team of volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the year to make it happen.

Volunteer at Irish Film Festival of Ottawa


Help us welcome guests to the 2020 Irish Film Festival. You may be asked to help orient guests as to the ticket table, coat check, washrooms, theatre, etc. 


Ticket Table

Help us manage the ticket table as guests collect their "Collect at the Door" tickets. You may be asked to make change for purchases. 



Help direct guests into the theatre and their seats, checking that they have the correct tickets. 



We like to know how everyone enjoyed the festival. Between films, as guests mingle, help us administer a short survey (using a tablet and online survey) about their experience.


Set-up and Take-down

We can always use extra hands for the set-up (on Friday) and take-down (on Sunday) of the festival.
