Seeking: Festival Volunteers, Photographers, Videographer


Inside Out is now seeking Homestay Hosts and Festival Drivers

Friends, Torontonians, film-lovers... lend us your homes, lend us your time!

Next month, Toronto will be invaded by filmmakers from all corners of the planet and they will be in need of shelter. If you have an extra bed that you could make available to an out-of-town guest, please let us know! Any availability is good - one night, two nights, or even the entire run of the festival. Our Homestay Program is a very special part of our festival hospitality and it's a great way to meet the artists and be involved with the Festival.

As well, volunteers with a car that would be willing to make trips to the airport are needed to help welcome our guests to Toronto as a part of our Festival Drivers Program. All volunteers will be rewarded with undying gratitude and tickets to screenings at this year’s festival (as well as gas/parking money for drivers).

If you are able to host a festival guest at your home and/or offer driving time, please get in touch with our Guest Relations Coordinator, Kat Hidalgo at 416-977-6847 ex. 26, or via email atguest@insideout.ca.
