Summer Camps in Paris

Filmmaking and Acting for Film Camps

A century after the first experiments with motion pictures took place in Paris and almost 50 years since the French New Wave changed the way we look at movies, NYFA’s students continue the tradition of capturing this city and the stories it generates on film. Since 1998, NYFA has held filmmaking and acting for film summer camps in Paris, hosted at the National Film School of France, La Fémis.

As one of world’s most elite film institutes, La Fémis is located in the historic neighborhood of Montmartre. Our programs offer students aged 14-17 an introduction to the world of cinematic storytelling, as well as great neighborhoods, museums, and city sites.

NYFA’s Paris programs are not being offered in 2024. Please browse our 2024 Summer Camp schedule to explore other campuses and locations. NYFA plans to return to Paris for summer 2025.
