  • Thanks for the useful information. I was just curious. I know in previous years they used to send out interviews, maybe they curbed that this year. Doesn't matter, I'm all cinema and film theory; this is a bad fit for me If I do somehow get in, you can count on me rejecting the offer. Hope it all works out for you.
