I've been lurking this page from time to time. It's been really helpful. Thanks to each one who contributed to it. Congrats to those who were accepted or waitlisted!!! For those who did not, no matter what, keep creating your chance will come with or without AFI. I got accepted, I still can't believe it (some imposter syndrome there). After a LOT of -financially speaking- thinking, I have accepted AFI's seat. Is anyone else attending? If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

He estado echando un vistazo a esta pagina de vez en cuando. Ha sido de mucha ayuda. Gracias a todos los que contribuyeron. Felicitaciones para los que fueron aceptados o en lista de espera. Para los que no, no importa que, sigan creando, la oportunidad va a llegar con o sin AFI. Fui aceptado y todavia no me lo creo (por ahi hay algo del sindrome del impostor). Después de pensarlo MUCHO en como financiarlo, acepté la oferta. Alguien más asistirá este año? Si tienen alguna pregunta con gusto les ayudo.

Initially, I hadn't looked into any other school outside of AFI because of the conservatory specific training program. I thought I'll just continue working and try next year if I don't get in. Which is what I'm currently doing.

But now I'm thinking if I should entertain the thought of looking at school outside US, one's where you have a cinematography specialised education like the CCC in Mexico or the Lodz Film School in Poland etc. One of the main hurdles, apart from the application, will be to learn the language because they don't offer the course in English, which I'm willing to accept as a welcoming challenge, as long as it is worth it.

Anybody else looking at schools outside US? What are your plans?

Hi friends, I'm sorry to hear about your rejections :( but I second what Chris said about not giving up! you're meant to create so many great stuff, keep going!
I got accepted but I'll still have to wait about the scholarship news to fully celebrate because there's no way i can afford afi without it. I'm grateful to be in though :)
Hi, congratulations on getting in! Just wondering, do you have any idea when you expect to hear if you got the scholarship?

Hey, I got the email just few days after the decision letter. AFI did give me a scholarship but it's unfortunately not enough for me... I still paid my deposit because I'm being very hopeful that I'll figure something out (or inherit some cash from my nonexistent rich grandparents lol).

Also, I read on another thread that AFI only gives out max $10k which I didn't know before and truthfully I thought there is more in their basket to give out 🤷‍♀️

Forsure! Thanks for sharing, and I hope you will be able to attend. One last thing, when did they say you had to accept your offer by?
