    AFI Previous Experience?

    From the discussions on AFI here, it seems AFI favors directing/production applicants who have good previous experience, on set or from undergrad. I've only got a half completed short in post at the moment, and have no experience otherwise (was an Econ major). What are your thoughts/knowledge...

    Film/Video background for the likes of AFI/Calarts?

    I'm a Graphics Design graduate planning to pursue Film making (and for that applying for MFA/MA in film/tv production).

    AFI question

    So another question. I was looking at their program and about their review after your first year ? I know other schools have this but it seems like a 'check your work, make sure grades are adequate'. The way AFI phrases it though, it seems to me like your position would be in real question. So I...

    Is AFI Certificate Worth It?

    I know that AFI only has an MFA program, but you can get a certificate if you don't have a college degree. Is this certificate worth it? Is it just as easy to get work with this as it is with an MFA, or should I go to undergraduate first? Help Please!

    AFI or Peter Stark for producing?

    Originally I was only going to apply to Peter Stark, assuming I'd work in LA for a year (I'm moving there August 18) and then if I got in, I'd work and do the program. But someone just recommended I apply to AFI's producing program, and the deadline is surprisingly still open until July 16th...

    Why AFI (American Film Institute)

    If you attended AFI, applied, or got accepted, I'd like to hear about your experience. Why did you choose AFI? Are you in debt and was it worth it? I heard that it would cost about $120,000 for the two year program at AFI. Is being in debt worth it? If you have gone to AFI or plan on...
