The end of January was an exciting time at New York Film Academy (NYFA), as students and instructors witnessed the culmination of their hard work over multiple days of final screenings, presentations, pitches, and of course, graduation ceremonies. 

Students were able to invite family, friends, and industry professionals and present their work; Filmmaking, Producing, and Acting for Film students held their final screenings at Warner Bros. Studios; Photography students had their work displayed in art galleries; Screenwriting and Producing students pitched ideas to entertainment professionals; and Game Design students presented their creations at a showcase. The excitement concluded with a full day of graduation ceremonies with family and faculty cheering on their graduates.

The January 2020 graduation ceremony was held at the Harmony Gold Theater in West Hollywood. Throughout three ceremonies, family and friends from all over the world gathered to celebrate as NYFA graduates proudly accepted their diplomas and tossed their caps in the air.

Guest speaker and NYFA Board Member Matthew Modine encouraged graduates to be actively present in the moment, instructing students and guests to take a deep breath, while stating, “Conscious breathing reminds us that we are alive, in the moment, and that the moment–this moment–is all there really is. No one has ever existed in the past or the future, there’s only now. You must always remember to breathe.” 


Modine continued his commencement speech by motivating students to hone in on their creativity and open their minds, proclaiming, “Being an artist requires you to think. It demands you to reason, collaborate, and develop a worldview. Your creativity will only be as vast as your imagination. Your talent will manifest in the choices that you make.” 

He added, “Today, you graduated from this Academy and you must now enroll in the school of thought. The cost for this next investment is simply being present and aware of each and every moment.” Modine’s message garnered a positive response from the hopeful graduates, excited to share their creativity with the world. 

New York Film Academy congratulates all of the incredible students who have dedicated so much time and hard work into completing their training here. We look forward to celebrating all their wonderful achievements to come!
