    Admitted (w/o Interview) American University MA in Film and Media Production

    This application was the easiest one I completed since there were no visual samples required. Heard back about admission in just over a week after applying.

    Admitted (After Interview) LMU Fall 2024 Film and TV Production MFA

    Application process was pretty straightforward. I spent a couple months working on my application materials, and then heard back about an interview in February, and found out about acceptance on March 29.

    Admitted but Not Attending (After Interview) MFA Production (Cinematography) - Florida State University

    Overall, the application went okay. It was quite lengthy and a bit intimidating at the start but once you start with your essays, it gets better. I would recommend to start early even though I completed mine in like 15 days because of all the other applications. I think getting a head start...

    Admitted (After Interview) LMU - Film & TV Production MFA - Fall 2024

    It's interesting that LMU only required a cellphone-made video of about 2-3 minutes for visual sample this year. LMU has moved the deadline a month forward, it used to be Dec 15 last year, so it's hard to refer to the interview or decision notification dates in the database. Finger crossed.

    Denied (w/o Interview) UCLA - Directing/Film Production MFA - Fall 2024

    This application was quite intensive, especially since there were a number of supplemental materials needed for it. This program also has the earliest deadline so be sure to work on this one as early as possible! I only decided to apply about a month out and it was definitely challenging!

    Attending (Admitted After Interview) UCLA Production/Directing MFA

    I struggled with writing the SOP and Personal Statement. I found this application to be a lot less "fun" than other ones (i.e. USC). But I am happy with what I was finally able to produce. I'm glad I gave myself a lot of time to brainstorm, edit, brainstorm, edit, on and on.

    Denied (w/o Interview) USC Film Production MFA - 2024

    Went very well, spent a lot of time preparing materials and like the short I submitted. Really enjoyed doing the supplementary materials. A lot of overlap with other applications.

    The Brave and the Bold

    Hello all! My name is Dave and I am currently pursuing graduate studies in Film Production. Like some of you on here, my path to filmmaking was not the most traditional. I had previously attended Colorado State University - Pueblo straight out of high school but a personal tragedy prompted me to...

    Attending (Admitted After Interview) LMU - Film and TV Production

    The application process was pretty smooth. My personal statement, treatment, and video showed who I was as a person and the person I wanted to become as a filmmaker. I think my personal statement was the strongest as I really dived into why I wanted to tell the stories I drive to tell. Really...

    Admitted (After Interview) LMU MFA Film Production

    I was waitlisted without interview for the cinematography specialisation last year and did not get in eventually. I switched my preferred specialisation to creative producing this time round and it went well. They had made some changes to their application from last year. Interesting prompts...

    Attending (Off Waitlist w/o Interview) USC Film & Television Production MFA - Fall 2023

    Quite a stressful process of many written materials and samples. This is my second time applying, first time I was denied so I didn't hold out for much hope but cool to know this time I was waitlisted! Am I correct in thinking this email is implying I am guaranteed admission in Spring 2024 if I...

    Pretty well. Nothing new required in the application materials compared to the fall 2022 application. Not sure when exactly we will start hearing back.

    AFI or USC?

    Hi all, this is my first time posting here but I've been sleuthing for months now. I'm an extremely indecisive person so this decision is really stressing me out. I applied as an international student for several MFA programs in the US and I've been accepted for AFI and waitlisted at USC...

    Admitted (After Interview) USC MFA Film Production Fall 2022

    The experience of applying to graduate film schools helps in distilling who you are and what you ultimately want from these programs. I applied to a broad net of seven graduate programs and found that writing essays and doing interviews for an earlier application made each subsequent application...

    Attending (Admitted After Interview) Stony Brook University MFA Film and TV Producer Track

    The application had a lot of elements to go through but the admissions committee, especially the program director was very helpful in solving all the queries that I had throughout the application process.
