Hi, I'm a transfer student from San Diego.
I was wondering if anyone from this site had any experience or advice regarding some film schools in CA.
So, I applied to
CSU Northridge: Accepted
UC Irvine: Accepted
UC Santa Barbara: Accepted
UC Berkeley: Accepted...
Have any transfers received an interview from UCLA tft? I'd assume that this has already happened because admissions decisions for transfers are only a few weeks away. Any insight on this would be helpful.

So here’s my story- I applied as a freshman undergrad to UCLA TFT for screenwriting/production. I did some research on UCLA’s film program during the summer, but couldn’t find anything specific. I also found some negative articles that warned me against the program. However, TFT is still at #2...
I applied for TFT back in December and I’m getting kinda anxious about waiting for an interview, since it’s already late February. Does anyone know if they’ve already sent them out for film applications? My friend had told me about how she got an interview as a Theater applicant, and...
First let me talk about my story first.
I submitted the UCLA TFT supplementary materials in Dec 2020 and it sent me the message that required me to correct my format of my essays, then I did that. Until 2 days ago they sent me the message via Accepted that my materials were eligible to...
Hi. Keeping this super short.
It has recently (within the hour) come to my attention that there has been a scathing (lol?) article written somewhere in the internet aether about UCLA's TFT department and their supposedly deteriorating performance in the last few years, even before xxxxx-19...

Hey all - current MFA Screenwriting student at UCLA. Chris suggested I do an AMA, so here it is.
This may be a little late as the current year's new cohort has already been decided. But if there's anyone that has questions about how to make the best of this situation while we're here, as I've...
I'm a Wyoming native, about to get my BFA in Theatre, conc. Acting. I'm seeking advice for resumes and portfolios for the MFA at FSU and UCLA in Production and Production/Directing respectively.
Since I grew up in Wyoming, I don't have much film experience and I'm not sure how...
I am currently deciding if I should accept my enrollment at the UCLA Professional Screenwriting Program, considering it will all be online now. Thankfully, screenwriting is very accessible to teach through online. I am passionate about screenwriting and have been wanting to move to LA and attend...
I have been working on my statement of purpose for the UCLA Screenwriting Professional Program and would love whatever feedback could be offered. It is supposed to be a page long. I will also be applying for an MFA in screenwriting + filmmaking this fall, and will be using this letter as...
Hey everyone! I’m currently almost finished with UCLA’s Professional Program for Writing For Television.
While it’s a non-degree granting program, it’s a great program for anyone who wants to keep learning but isn’t interested in an MFA.
I’m happy to answer any questions!
Been lurking on this site and feels like only a few people applied to the cinematography program at UCLA.
The wait has been too long so I am wondering if anyone has heard anything from them?
It'd be great to have some closure at least if possible.
Thanks to this site I have communicated with...
