VSAFF is turning 8! (We can’t believe it, either). And as our festival continues to get bigger and better, our all-volunteer committee needs to grow, too.

VSAFF is seeking an enthusiastic, creative, and organized individual to manage and grow our digital presence while working with our awesome volunteer committee. 

This is a part-time position based on 60 hours over five months (November-March). If you have experience in social media and digital marketing (and if you love South Africa, or film, or you just have a passion for cultural and non-profit events in Vancouver) we want to talk to you!
