2-Year Filmmaking Certificate Program

Learn How To Make Films and New Media

During the 2-Year Filmmaking Certificate program at NYFA’s Film School, aspiring filmmakers immerse themselves in the art of cinematic storytelling. Similar to our one-year certificate, this full-time film program provides extensive mentorship and training, and students gain ample hands-on experience in film, media, and video production.

Students direct, write, shoot, produce, and edit a number of their own films, while working in a range of roles on 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 video, commercials, and documentaries, learning a variety of storytelling formats. Through our learn-by-doing process, students uncover their unique creative voice and truly develop the expertise needed to be a successful filmmaker and content creator. The program culminates in a final thesis film, where students can show their advanced filmmaking knowledge and techniques.
