Does anyone know of a current list of film production/directing MFA programs, and maybe forums with former student reviews of them? I have the book "Film School Confidential," which is great, but it is 9 years out of date. I'm interested in both US and international programs. Thanks! [more inside]

If you can help us identify the first instance of this shift in popular culture, we'll give you a film credit.

Please help me find the name of a weird educational science film I watched in high school. It was about the Big Bang and astrophysics. The action took place aboard a set that was supposed to be some kind of space station, where about three people discussed these issues. At the end, everyone got sucked into a black hole and the film ended abruptly.
