    First time applying to a competitive film program like SCA.

I was really surprised to get into SCA after being rejected from LMU's...

    2025 - NFTS Directing Documentary MA

    Hi there! I haven't seen any threads about people applying for Directing Documentary at NFTS next year, so I thought I'd start one. Submitted my application on May 7th, now I'm anxiously awaiting a response. Is there anyone else out there? 😊

    Denied (w/o Interview) Stanford MFA Documentary & Film Program

    Going through the application, I really had to dig deep and express my passion for documentary filmmaking. With my BFA in Studio Arts and experiences from undergrad, I expressed my desire to bring powerful stories to light.

    Denied (w/o Interview) Stanford Documentary MFA Fall 2024

    Lots of written materials, especially since I didn't have an undergrad writing sample to include. But the application process was a rewarding experience of reflection.

    Denied (w/o Interview) Stanford Documentary MFA - 2024

    I submitted before the deadline, though I ran out of time to write the supplemental essay, so I used a paper from a film theory class. Not quite related to documentary.

    Admitted (After Interview) MA Documentary Leeds Beckett

    The application process was a bit lengthy but effortless. As it asks basic SOP and portfolio. I generally love talking about my work so writing for this application was a joyful process. It made me know more about where I see myself in the long run in the documentary scene.

    The application was easy. We had to submit statement of purpose and a study proposal for a documentary. I feel it was among the easiest applications. The college looks really nice especially for people who want to be in a small community and not a big university which can sometimes be...

    Applied UCLA - eileenmcn

    This application was stange because it does not contain a media submission. Beyond that it was the first I submitted so I do cringe a little looking back at the way I structured my answers. I liked that the materials were specific to the goals we are meant to carry out in the program.
