On May 19, the New York Film Academy Chinese Students and Scholars Association (NYFA-CSSA) was presented a Certificate of Appreciation and awarded the title of Excellent Student Home for outstanding contributions to the Southwestern Chinese Students and Scholars Association.
The Southwestern Chinese Students and Scholars Association is an organization under the management from the Chinese consulate in Los Angeles. The group organizes clubs for students from China studying in the United States—the Chinese Students and Scholars Association—around college campuses nationwide.
NYFA-CSSA is based at the NYFA-Los Angeles campus and boasts around 30 students. The club has hosted two events so far this year, including the Chinese Spring Festival Gala in February. The Gala involved different shows and an authentic Chinese dinner for guests.
In May, NYFA-CSSA hosted the LA Chinese Student Film Screening. The event showcased films from Chinese students—not only from NYFA but also from other distinguished schools in the area, including Chapman, AFI, and USC—making NYFA and NYFA-CSSA a central hub for Chinese students in the greater Los Angeles area. The LA Chinese Student Film Screening also invited the film directors to have a Q&A with the audience, and was a very well-received event by all.
Because of these two events as well as other contributions by NYFA-CSSA, the Southwestern Chinese Students and Scholars Association awarded the club the Certificate of Appreciation. New York Film Academy congratulates the members of NYFA-CSSA on the terrific achievement!
