Screenwriting School at the New York Film Academy
What makes our Screenwriting Program unique?In the film industry, screenwriters are now recognized as being just as important as directors in making films. The cliche still holds true, you can make a bad movie with a good screenplay, but you can't make a good movie with a bad screenplay.
Successful screenwriting, however, requires discipline, perseverance and training. One of the most difficult aspects of screenwriting is simply getting started. After years of stopping and starting, many writers find that dedicating themselves to an intensive program of study at a top-notch film school, surrounded by other new writers, screenwriting can take on life of its own and become second nature.
The Screenwriting Workshops and Programs of the New York Film Academy are the most comprehensive screenwriting courses of all top film schools. Students can develop an idea into a feature length screenplay in as little as eight weeks, or hone their skills in our One-Year Screenwriting Program, and walk away with a body of work to begin their professional screenwriting journey. At each step of the way, the student is nurtured in a workshop environment. There is no better screenwriting resource than superior training. Your instructors at NYFA are award-winning, working screenplay writers, most with a Master's Degrees from some of the country's finest university film schools.
Whether a student chooses the Eight-Week Workshop, the Twelve-Week Evening Workshop or the One-Year Program, with strict adherence to the daily rituals of writing and learning, students will be able to make tremendous strides.
