Didn’t see an AFI producing discipline thread, figured I would make one since interview notifications are starting to go out for the other disciplines.

Ended up getting my interview request earlier this evening, about 6 PM EST.

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing good.

I just wanted to know if somebody who already interviewed for the AFI producing MFA could share the questions that were asked to him.
It is my first film school interview and I do not really know what to expect so such a testimony would be amazingly helpful!

Many thanks and have a great day,

Denis

Hello! I just created my account. I had my interview yesterday. I don't know how it went... I was kinda nervous and my Mexican accent got in the way sometimes. The interviewers were very nice though!

I’m sure it went better than you think! Also, who did you end up interviewing with?

Thank you! I hope so. I interviewed with Sandy Stern and Sam Robertson. They were both very nice!
Wow, I will also be interviewed by Sandy Stern! Could you please share your experience in the interview? I'm not sure what questions will be asked and I'm a little nervous.

It was more of a conversation instead of a question-answer list interview. We talked about where I am currently and how is my life here, about my current job, what films and shows I've been watching, how were the classes in my bachelor's degree, why AFI, why producing, some other questions about my resume, which career I aspire to have. It lasted around 30 minutes.
