Volunteer at the IDA

The IDA depends on the generous contribution of time and knowledge of its volunteers to make our programs and events happen. Volunteering is a great way to support the IDA, meet like-minded professionals in the filmmaking industry, and gain access to the IDA’s informative and sought after programs and events.

Volunteer opportunities at the IDA include our ongoing educational seminars and public events including the IDA Screening Series, IDA Documentary Awards, and DocuDay.
