In conjunction with the Aljazeera Media Training and Development Center, the New York Film Academy brings its hands-on intensive 4-week HD Filmmaking Workshop
to Doha, Qatar.
The State of Qatar is one of the most exciting countries in the Middle East, with the population predominantly young, the economy expanding, and the pace of modernization quickening every year.
Qatar is the home of Aljazeera Satellite Channel
& of the Qatar Foundation's Education City, one of the most ambitious and far-reaching centers for education and research in the Middle East.
Aljazeera Media Training and Development Center
As a part of Aljazeera Media Network, Aljazeera Media Training & Development Center was launched on February 24, 2004. The idea of establishing the Center came from Al Jazeera’s belief in the importance of training to improve and develop media capabilities. The Center opened with a clear vision and mission, focused on providing quality media training and development to all employees in media related fields. International, as well as professional media figures and amateurs have benefitted immensely from the Center’s training.
Aljazeera Media Training and Development Center is currently enjoying a prominent position in the world of media. This position is consolidated by the fact that it always keeps pace with the latest developments in the media world. The Center is also equipped with cutting-edge technologies in line with the highest standards of multimedia communications. Read more…
The New York Film Academy has an open enrollment. Serious students from all backgrounds are welcome to apply. No previous experience is required. However, all New York Film Academy Workshops are extremely intensive. Students who enroll should be prepared to live and breathe their work during these workshops. Given the nature of filmmaking and the necessity of working in crews, students must be willing to devote themselves not only to their own projects, but to their classmates’ projects as well. As space is limited, we recommend early application to guarantee a place in the workshop.
All courses are taught in English.
Every workshop is full-time, with classes or shooting organized nearly every day of the week. The schedules are rigorous; however, students will have the opportunity to explore Doha.
Students shoot with High-Definition Canon 5D Mark III cameras and portable lighting packages for every shoot. All students edit digitally using digital editing software. The equipment our Film Academy students use is comparable to that of the leading degree programs in the United States.
In all our locales, our eclectic faculty for our Filmmaking and Acting for Film workshops is comprised of experienced instructors who are professional filmmakers and actors. Many of our filmmaking instructors have Master of Fine Arts degrees from the most prestigious film programs in the United States. These include New York University, Columbia University, the University of Southern California, and UCLA. Our Acting for Film faculty has equally impressive credentials, and their professional experience allows students to learn from people who understand the requirements to work at the highest level.
