About the Event & Our Festival
Founded in 2014, our Study Abroad Film Festival was the first student-focused study abroad film festival in the industry. Up until last year, our Festival was solely an online opportunity for students to share their amazing stories from study abroad—both what the experience meant to them, and how it redefined their world. With the help of a celebrity host, thoughtful and creative student film-makers, and a beautiful art museum to spend the evening in, our first live Film Festival event on November 1, 2017 was an amazing success garnering over 100 million media impressions.
We are thrilled to announce that we'll be hosting our 2nd annual Film Festival event on November 7, 2018 — so mark your calendars and get your tickets now!
Our 5th annual IES Abroad Study Abroad Film Festival is expected to be an extraordinary night of study abroad film screenings, complimented by a meet-and-greet with student filmmakers, IES Abroad alumni, and our award-winning jurors all in benefit of IES Abroad scholarships.
We hope you join us on November 7th, 2018 to celebrate and honor our talented student film-makers! RSVP on Facebook.
