New York Film Academy (NYFA) would like to congratulate another class of graduating students—the Winter Class of 2019!

The end of a program is always bittersweet—our students and instructors develop a strong bond over the many intense hours spent learning, practicing, and crafting projects. But before the winter class of 2019 walked across the stage to accept their diplomas, NYFA celebrated all of the graduates’ work with a series of final presentations.

In the days leading up to graduation, all students were given an opportunity to show off their work to family, friends, and entertainment professionals; Filmmaking, Animation, Producing, and Acting for Film students held their final screenings at the NYFA Theater and on the Warner Brothers Studios backlot; Photography students had their work displayed in galleries throughout Los Angeles; Game Design students held a showcase where anyone in the school could play their games, and Screenwriting and Producing students had the chance to pitch their projects to industry professionals.

The winter 2019 graduation ceremony was held at the Harmony Gold Theatre in Hollywood; the graduating class of 2019 was so large that the ceremony had to be broken into three parts. Families and friends came from all over the world to support and celebrate the graduates on their big day.

Guest speaker Bryce Neilsen advised graduating students to be patient with their journeys in the entertainment industry as it took him and many of his colleagues a few years to get where they wanted to be. “You’re gonna go through highs and lows … especially when you’re trying to crack that first job,” he said. “As you go along this journey, always remember the people around you, because those relationships will help with growth in the industry but also on a personal level.” 

Neilsen finished on a hopeful note: “This is a great time to be really telling your story, because there are so many spaces online and elsewhere to turn ideas into a reality.”

New York Film Academy would like to congratulate all of the incredible students who have completed their training here; we look forward to watching your films, seeing your photographs, playing your games, and celebrating your creative endeavors for years to come. Congratulations!
