For the past 5 years, our Film Festival has encouraged IES Abroad students to capture the spirit of study abroad—what it meant to them, and how it redefined their world.
Join us on November 7th, 2019 for an extraordinary night of study abroad film screenings, a live announcement of the winning film, and a meet-and-greet with student filmmakers, alumni, and our award-winning jurors, all in benefit of IES Abroad scholarships.
Can't stand the wait? Us either! Join our email list to be one of the first to know when tickets go on sale.
A film about a mysterious night in Barcelona, an emotional music video from Rabat, and an adventurous short about friendship went head to head for the Grand Prize during last year's Study Abroad Film Festival!
After 2,000+ votes we were thrilled to announce our Grand Prize Winner at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Chicago on November 7th, 2018. The evening was MC'd by award winning film critic Richard Roeper and was attended by almost 200 study abroad lovers, students, and staff.
The whole night encouraged us to keep traveling, share our adventures, and forge strong relationships along the way. And that's exactly the message I wanted to share through my film: get out of your comfort zone, say yes to adventure, capture your experience, and use it to inspire others.
