The Toronto Korean Film Festival (TKFF) is hiring for its 6th annual festival. And if you love film, especially Korean film, this is a great film festival to share your expertise or gain experience in the film industry. Of course, I’m biased as the Chair of the board of directors of TKFF, but even when I was simply covering it as media, I loved the festival. Not only is it a fabulous opportunity to build or share your professional film and/or event experience in an entirely volunteer run setting, but it’s also a wonderful place to make friends. What’s not to love about that?

TKFF is looking for a whole host of volunteer staff in a variety of different areas of expertise, so if you have an interest in film and culture, especially Korean, there’s a position that will (hopefully) fit you. What do you have to lose? Apply now!

Live life to the fullest everyday - this is a the philosophy I try to live by and it's taken me on many adventures. I write about Korean culture from a non-Korean perspective as the editor/founder of ATK Magazine and I'm the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Toronto Korean Film Festival (TKFF). Previously, I ran a Korean-English language exchange group (in Toronto) for 3 years to stay connected to my three years living in Korea as an English teacher. I love music, film, food and sports and write about 3 of the 4.
