Volunteer with us

Festival CINERGIE offers a wide variety of volunteer positions for youth, adults and seniors in a Francophone environment in Saskatoon. It is the perfect opportunity to support your local Francophone film festival, make connections with the community, practice your French, gain experience to add to your work resume (volunteering is a great way to stand out and get a foot in the door), and gain free access to the festival! CINERGIE offers volunteer positions, both before, and during the festival week and throughout the year.

Before and during the official Festival Edition and CINERGIE « Outside » the Walls events: volunteers are required for non-demanding micro-volunteering tasks (that will not take away large chunks of your time)

  • Poster Posting: set up posters within specific strategic locations in the city (downtown YXE, francophone organizations, UofS, Sask Polytech, francophone and French immersion schools)

  • Set Up: must be available before the event opening hours to set up banners, tables, merch, etc.
