We recently concluded our 3rd Annual Study Abroad Film Festival and, with more YouTube views, votes, and entries than ever, we couldn’t have been happier with the results. We’re still buzzing.

Why? Because of the unprecedented media exposure the Film Festival has generated—it was covered on local TV, radio, print, and online outlets across the United States, reaching a massive audience of 177,113,504 people across 400+ pieces of coverage, including:

  • 170 TV and radio segments
  • 175 newspapers and online news sources
  • 100 press release pick-ups on news services, blogs, and trade journals

Here’s an overview of coverage along with some highlights in each category:
