    Review by 'jkosmacki' on film school 'Brooklyn College (CUNY)'

    The Feirstein School is a huge up-and-comer, a nascent program that will come to rival the top schools in coming years. Their equipment inventory, soundstages, and range of production and post-production facilities, including construction shop, FOLEY studios, many editing bays, motion capture...

    They actually have a good screenwriting program and a strong film department as a whole, with classes in general film production, industry studies, and a lot of courses in film studies. Their graduate MFA program is also great and both the undergrad and grad film schools are a fantastic value...

    Fall 2023 Brooklyn College Feirstein Acceptance - Now What?

    As I remember, there are a good number of folks in their 30s and a few in their 40s and 50s, so it's not just twenty-somethings.

    Fall 2023 Brooklyn College Feirstein Acceptance - Now What?

    Oh awesome yeah I almost went there! Williamsburg is cool, and Monticello is nice too, I went there a few years ago. In western NY I've only been to Buffalo, haven't been to Rochester. I think there's actually another student in the directing track from Rochester.

    Fall 2023 Brooklyn College Feirstein Acceptance - Now What?

    Oh nice, yeah I was able to get registered for everything I wanted. Most of my sections haven't filled up, although the production workshop is almost full (11 of 13 seats), that's the Thursday morning section with Lessovitz. Good to hear Feirstein has their own orientation in August, that I...

    Hey I'm also going to be at Feirstein for Directing this fall, great to connect with a future classmate! Especially since I can't make it to the incoming students open house in May. I'm from VA, moving to Brooklyn in July. Were you able to get into all the class sections you wanted on Monday?

    could I-(am i allowed) graduate by making a feature length film? or do i have to make a short film for graduation as well (diploma film)

    Hi! I would ask the department chair or head of your program. As someone who made a feature during my bachelors, I wouldn't necessarily caution against it, but it's an awful lot of work to do in addition to being a student and working. You might be better off making a short film only because you...

    DePaul vs Brooklyn College for directing MFA

    I actually did commit so I'll be going to Brooklyn College in the fall. The price is a big factor, it's one of the cheapest MFAs and a great value all around. After talking to some folks who got their MFAs in film from different places (USC, NYU, AFI), they all said you basically get out what...

    Columbia Screenwriting/Directing MFA 2023

    So far looks like six have been accepted for Screenwriting/Directing, at least based on these forums. No idea how many could already be accepted that don't use this site, but just going off users here, I'd say there's probably at least a good few more who will be accepted this week. Best of luck...

    Columbia Screenwriting/Directing MFA 2023

    Congrats!!! So exciting wow Did he just call you over the phone or did he send an email to hop on a Zoom link? I read in past years they did the email. Also, did the caller ID say Eric's name or was it like just a New York number?

    Fall 2023 Brooklyn College Feirstein Acceptance - Now What?

    Awesome, thanks for sharing all this! Really gives a better sense of the place and instills more confidence for sure. And yeah NYC is expensive, just how it goes. I've lived in other places that are cheaper, but there's usually such a dearth of film opportunities. Anyway, thanks again for...

    Fall 2023 Brooklyn College Feirstein Acceptance - Now What?

    Awesome, good to hear you got a much better vibe from Feirstein than this video! Makes me feel better about the resources and facilities they offer. In terms of the financial packages, that does make sense. I guess it's only something we can find out if we make the deposit though. Kinda makes...

    Fall 2023 Brooklyn College Feirstein Acceptance - Now What?

    Interesting, thanks for sharing this video! Good to know this about the broader institution. I wonder how it affects the Feirstein School, which is physically at Steiner Studios rather than the BC campus. Could make getting new equipment more difficult, maybe affect their aid packages. On some...

    Columbia Screenwriting/Directing MFA 2023

    Someone in Creative Producing got their acceptance email today, so if there's a week between emails being sent, then next week they might send out emails for S/D. And since some of those accepted CP candidates got calls starting Friday, they might start calling people at the end of this week...

    Fall 2023 Brooklyn College Feirstein Acceptance - Now What?

    Nope they kept it very short, didn't mention anything about the aid packages. I think it's just a matter of procedure for Brooklyn College. It is a bit annoying, having to put $250 down before you can hear what type of aid you might receive. That said, I don't think I'll press the issue since...
