TIFF’s Docent Programme engages audiences in a meaningful and dynamic experience of our diverse programming through weekly volunteer-led facility tours, facilitated film talks, and more. It aims to deepen relationships between those engaging with our current programming (i.e. TIFF Members, school workshop participants), as well as develop new relationships through free public tours of the TIFF Bell Lightbox and Seniors’ Film Friday events. Our Seniors’ Film Fridays programme is a grant funded initiative that has established new partners within the community by hosting off-site and in-house screenings for local seniors’ organizations.

The Docent Programme Intern will support the Coordinator, Volunteer & Intern Resources with the implementation of the Docent Programme. This is a unique opportunity for those interested in adult education, community outreach, film, event planning, and arts administration to learn and gain practical work experience through a public engagement initiative at TIFF.
