I'm a directing applicant but I didn't receive an interview from AFI yet, but USC asked to interview me tomorrow, very stressful!
 
I'm a producing program applicant. I also didn't get an email but the empower website shows I've been selected for interview. I recommend you also try checking the website
 
@Chris W This new format is actually a bit more difficult to view than the other one. I liked quickly looking and being able to see how many people applied in a table.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm working on getting the display of the applications better. More features are in the works. However in the long run this feature should be infinitely better than the Google Sheets version for reasons explained in the main post (instant notifications, more info embedded, not having someone mess up the entire sheet etc...). There are some growing pains as the feature evolves and we learn how to use it.

BUT - there is an easy way to see all of the applications for one school. Use the Advanced Search:

Search Applications

For example using that to search for all of the AFI directing applicants for 2019 simply search for "AFI Directing" and in category choose "mfa fall 2019". Results below:

Search results for query: afi directing

I'll hopefully be able to make it so that you can see the various info people enter (such as dates) in that list view pretty soon.

I've had a few views on both my films (dated 9 & 10 January). No interview invitation as yet though.
Have any directing applicants received their interview invitation or had any views?

Several views from Empower spread out over a few days over the past 2 weeks or so. They viewed the whole video a few times but no interview invitations yet. From past years, it looks like they mostly finish up invites for an entire program first before moving on and Screenwriting invites are currently on their way out. I’d expect something in the next week or two.

This is my first time on this website, but I came on for information about the interview process. I received my call for an interview a few days ago, just trying to prepare.

Hey are you going for a directing interview or others?

Yeah, directing discipline, fall 2019. That's what this thread is for right? Sorry I'm new here and trying to learn how to navigate the platform.

Dean have you received an invitation to interview yet? It seems so slow! I've had three more views on my films last week, but perhaps that doesn't mean too much.

Just to ease everyone's mind, from everything I've read, they aren't supposed to start contacting people until February and it can go all the way up until a couple weeks before the notifications (March 15th). I recieved my interview invite January 25th, and it's for February 4th. I believe I recieved this early, again, just from what I've read. So if you haven't gotten an invite yet, you have a lot of time. Just keep positive energy!

I have seen a post on this website that contains a lot of actual interview questions from the previous interviewees. I think that's helpful!
