INTERNATIONAL TEFL ACADEMY'S
TEACH ABROAD FILM FESTIVAL
Taking place at The Davis Theater, in Chicago, on April 2, 2020, the Teach Abroad Film Festival's goal is to celebrate the work of incredible English teachers abroad who help make a difference through international education & cultural exchange.
Are you an International TEFL Academy student or alumni? Submit your film today!
After a fantastic debut in 2019 (49 submissions, 12 finalists, 3 winners, 220+ attendees, and $1,804 raised for charity), ITA's Teach Abroad Film Festival is back in 2020, and is once again calling upon all International TEFL Academy alumni from all walks of life, cultures, and backgrounds to share with the world what it's like to be an English teacher around the globe.
Teaching English Abroad is a truly unique and inspiring experience. You are a teacher, a traveler and an explorer - all at the same time. We'd like you to tell your unique story through the power of film by drawing on the International TEFL Academy slogan for inspiration. You must incorporate elements of each of these three topics within your film:
Teach. Travel. Explore.
One way or another, through your experience(s) overseas, you are all storytellers. Because teaching, traveling and exploring are at the core of International TEFL Academy's values, we'd like to reward the 3 best overall films with prizes that will help you continue sharing your story:
- $2,000 (USD) cash prize;
- Teach Abroad Film Festival trophy.
2ND PRIZE: $1,000 (USD) | film festival trophy.
3RD PRIZE: $500 (USD) | film festival trophy.
A FUN EVENT FOR A GOOD CAUSE
In 2019, all tickets proceeds were donated to The Foundation for Learning & Youth Travel Education (FLYTE) in order to strengthen international education and support youth empowerment in underserved communities within the USA.
Our charity partner for 2020 will be announced very soon. Stay tuned!
