The Original Hands-on Film, Media, and Performing Arts School

New York Film Academy was founded on the philosophy that “learning by doing” combined with best industry practices is more valuable than years of theoretical study for film, media, and performing arts students. This educational model allows students to achieve more in less time than at other institutions.

Since enrolling in NYFA’s BFA Acting for Film degree, my classes, peers and professors have opened up a whole new world for me that I have come to appreciate and am proud to be part of. I cannot wait to use all the techniques and tools I’ve learned to continue my journey into the film industry. Mayté Losada Acting for Film
As an Entertainment Professional, I decided to take NYFA’s Intro to Cinematography class to learn the craft and allow me to have more knowledgeable conversations with DPs. It expanded my knowledge, inspired me creatively and gave me more confidence on set – an invaluable resource. Nathan Williams Cinematography
At NYFA, I learned that everything is possible in the film world with a certain amount of effort. Believing to be capable is the key to success. Pedro Peira Documentary Filmmaking
I got to know myself in depth thanks to the intensity and discipline of the program. I learned about endurance, patience and my own breaking point during my studies. Discovering what my mind and body was capable of at the toughest of moments has been my greatest asset in life. Furaha Bayibsa Filmmaking, Producing, Screenwriting
