As a char­i­ta­ble, not-for-prof­it, cul­tur­al orga­ni­za­tion, GIFF has always depend­ed on the gen­eros­i­ty of our diverse team of vol­un­teers. We are grate­ful for the con­sid­er­able con­tri­bu­tions made by our vol­un­teers every year and know that we could not launch this Fes­ti­val with­out their ded­i­ca­tion and support.

We are look­ing for vol­un­teers to sup­port our 2024 fes­ti­val, July 24 – 28th, in Gim­li, Manitoba!
