    Admitted (After Interview) Feirstein Brooklyn College MFA in Cinema Arts

    It's been slightly weird. I don't feel like the interviewer was very interested in me or my work. I also haven't heard from actual Feirstein people yet. I only got a generic Brooklyn College granulations email.

    Brooklyn College vs Ithaca

    My daughter got accepted to both Brooklyn College and Ithaca College for her BA in film. She's hoping to become a director. Ignoring cost, which of these schools is better? Which has better resources, professors, alumni connections, etc.? I'd appreciate any personal experience. Thanks in advance!

    Admitted (After Interview) Brooklyn College MFA Fall 2024

    It was fairly straight forward, uploading my creative sample was easy and so was gathering all the needed materials. I also like they made sure to keep the personal statement in a short limit as well. I felt good after submitting.

    Admitted but Not Attending (After Interview) Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema Brooklyn College Film MFA - Fall 2024

    The process was fairly easy. The application website was a little glitchy, so I couldn't submit my application when I wanted to. Brooklyn College had the latest application deadline out of all my schools, but I decided to apply earlier.

    FYI: Feirstein Grad School introducing "Live Action Filmmaking" track in 2024-25 academic year

    Hey all, I'm a 3rd-year MFA student at Brooklyn College's Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema (its a 3-year program, so this is my last semester!) and since I'm one of those people who likes to look up what people online are saying about their school, I came across a few threads here about...

    Admitted (After Interview) Brooklyn College Feirstein - Directing - Fall 2023

    This application was not too difficult, but I did apply after the priority deadline (1/15), so that might hurt my chances. I had received conflicting info from Feirstein's website from that of the CUNY Brooklyn College. Anyway, there are a bunch of parts to the application, but it does not...

    Stony Brook vs Emerson vs Brooklyn - A little confused about which school to attend.

    I just got my acceptance for Stony Brook directing track. I've also applied to Emerson and Brooklyn College (I'm fairly confident about these applications). I know Emerson is a giant when it comes to its robust program and alumni. Stony Brook so far has been my first choice among the three but...

    First time applying-- applying straight from undergrad. I took the very first interview slot in February. Had a great interview experience.

    Admitted but Not Attending (After Interview) Cinematography MFA / Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema (CUNY Brooklyn College)

    Received an email for an interview, asked to send an image to discuss. Interview was a little odd--I really couldn't tell if they had reviewed my application or remembered who I was, so I wasn't sure if I should or shouldn't repeat things I had written. There was no mention of my portfolio at...
