Anyone else heard anything from Directing Fiction? No news is presumably bad news considering some people have already been invited for interviews...

Hey everyone,
Anyone heard back yet for Cinematography interviews?
The registrar told me end of June so I guess I still have a couple of days, but I'm curious to see if anyone else who applied for Cinematography already heard back one way or another.
Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Nothing for me and for another guy who applied for cinematography but isn't on this forum.
I just wrote to the registry today, because I am like on the website and Gmail 24/7 just refreshing it...
I will write here if I get any message

Good luck to you too!

Hey Norbert,

Thank you! I was planning on calling the registrar, but I figured I might wait till Friday and give them time to respond to everyone. It looks to me as though the committee officially stopped deliberations last Friday if not even yesterday for some of the specializations, so yeah.

Thanks!

Hey guys! I also applied for cinematography and I'm also freaking out! lol I still haven't gotten anything in the mail. I'm starting to get really nervous because I got in AFI and I have to figure things out as soon as possible... Anyway, whoever gets the e-mail let us all know! hahaha
My application status also changed to "interview" and "workshop", which wasn't there yesterday... Is that normal? ahhhh

Awesome! I haven’t checked my dashboard yet, but it was still stuck at “Selection Panel” yesterday so.
Congratulations on getting into AFI! Which one are you leaning towards more?
Best of luck to you as well!

They replied to my email, saying "The outcome will be emailed to you by the end of this week. "
I couldn't dare to ask if they are working on the weekend as well, but fingers crossed we will know it as soon as possible :D

Well, I just got the email about 20 minutes ago.
Guess it wasn’t for this time around.
I do wish everyone else good luck and lots of success 💪🏼

Doh. Sorry to hear. Please add your application info to the tracker when you can to help future applicants.


And good luck on the next round!

Applied for Directing Fiction, rejected - anyone have thoughts on if it's kosher to ask them for specifics on a rejection or feedback? Thought I had a pretty strong app (had worked on NFTS films and some alums worked on my short), obviously it's never a shoe in but would love to know what they're looking for next time round.

I don't think it couldn't hurt to ask but they probably won't tell you anything. Did you interview?

Also be sure to add your application to the tracker too to help future applicants.

Cinematography applicant here! Just got my rejection email, guess it's not meant to be :)
There's always next time. Do you know how many they accept and how many applicants there are?
 
Just got my interview and it was fun and warm, they are nice people and very enthusiastic. Has anyone else already passed an interview?
