So second time lucky 🤞 I've applied for the Directing Fiction MA at NTFS for entry in Jan 2022. Just thought I'd throw a thread up here to see if anyone else is in the same boat who want to stew together? 😂 Or more helpfully, just connect and share our experiences and whatnot.

Haha! Let the pain commence @jcassidius !

Have you applied anywhere else, or putting all your eggs in the NFTS basket? For me it's NFTS or nowhere really.
Yeah I've only applied to the NFTS too, if it works out great! but if not then it's not the end of the world 😊 Here's a trailer for one of the film's I applied with if you're interested
, the other one is only picture locked at the moment :)

Hi both,
I applied for the Screenwriting MA, thought I'd chime in here as there isn't a general thread for 2022 applications yet. I applied for NFTS and the Northern Film School. I've already been accepted to the Northern Film School (they gave me an offer on the spot during my interview which blew me away) so I'm happy either way really.

Fingers crossed we'll hear back in the next month or so, I applied all the way back in Feb so it's been a long wait already!
 
Hi! Second time here too!!!
Crossing fingers is not enough this time, I’m learning astrology to summon the planets for this one. Let us know if you hear anything from the nfts!
 
Also how did you find writing the treatment? Did you have any kinda experience writing that stuff before? Also would love to see any of your work if you wanted to share 😊
Writing the treatment was horrible last year and this year haha. I always manage to be kinda happy about it, but two pages double spaced is way too hard for someone that likes to type a lot 😂

Oh wow that is a long wait! But congrats on the Northern Film school! I’ve heard good things about them ☺️

Yeah not writing too much is definitely a struggle 😂 But best of luck with your application! Not sure if it’s appropriate, but if you have anything you want to share, would love to see it! I’m always interested in seeing the different types of films people like to make ☺️ especially making anything the past year has been so difficult!

Sure! I'll send you a message

First application here! I've proposed my application for MA Producing of NFTS 06th May, now my head is fulfilled with the thought that when would they send the result to me 😭

I believe it's still at the selection panel stage. Based on previous years I don't think we will hear back until July (if invited back for an interview) and the final decision of admittance sometime in August.

Nope. Normally it takes a veeeeeery long time. Somewhere around end of June the lucky ones will hear from them (I think)
I just wonder the deadline was one month earlier than last year, I guess whether the judging progress would be earlier too... my statue is between selection panel and interview, how is yours?

Hi! I just had to re-send the link to my short as it was wrong, and I asked for some info...the registry office wrote me that we will hear something by the end of June.
She also wrote that:
Number of applications received:350
Places :10
So acceptance rate of 2.85%
Harvard has 3.8% so it's really difficult....finger crossed for everyone!
