Learn How To Make Films and New Media
During the 2-Year Film Certificate program at NYFA’s Film School, aspiring filmmakers immerse themselves in the art of cinematic storytelling. Similar to our one-year program, this full-time conservatory-style filmmaking program provides extensive mentorship and training, and students gain ample hands-on experience in film, media, and video production.
Throughout their 2 years with NYFA, students direct, write, shoot, produce, and edit several of their own films, while working in various roles in their classmates’ films, rounding out their creative and technical training. Students also explore creative content development that may include web series, podcasts, music videos, virtual reality videos, commercials, and documentaries, learning a variety of storytelling formats. Our learn-by-doing process, helps students uncover their unique creative voice and truly develop the expertise needed to be successful filmmakers and content creators. The program culminates in a final thesis film, where students can show their advanced filmmaking knowledge and techniques. Upon completion of the program, students receive a certificate.
