    As this is my first thread I think I should say:
    Hello to all of you!
    Warm greetings form Poland!

    To the point:
    I wish to arrange an interview. I'd like to talk to somebody about, let's just say, a film. I don't know who exactly am I going to talk to. So I write:

    "I'd like to make an interview about a film".

    Is this sentence correct? May I make an interview about something? or with somebody? only?

    Thanks for your help!

    You can say: I'd like to have an interview with someone about a film. Or, I'd like to interview someone about a film. You can also conduct an interview. And welcome to the Forum!

    Welcome to the forums PolDek! :)

    Another possiblity is simply "I'd like to arrange an interview about a film." We don't usually say "make" an interview.

    Welcome to the forums, PolDek,

    Another common way to express this: I would like to schedule an interview to discuss _______.

    As Nun-Translator said, "make an interview" is not idiomatic.
