    AFI Editing Fall 2021

    Hi, is there a thread for AFI Editing program Fall 2021? I can’t find one, so I just create this. Seems that not so many people apply for AFI editing this year, or they just didn’t find this forum?

    Applied AFI - Cinematography Fall 2021

    Since this was my first year applying, I'm a bit nervous.

I reached out to previous applicants...
