The 8-Week Filmmaking Workshop in Mumbai offers the best of all worlds: focused learning, hands-on film productions, and the opportunity to make a fully-realized final film.

The Mumbai filmmaking workshop is divided between hands-on instruction in class and the production by each student of a series of short films of increasing difficulty. Students direct their own projects in three or four person crews, rotating through key crew positions when fellow classmates direct. Special classes in digital camera and lighting are given before students shoot their films. Students use HDSLR cameras, Lowel lighting packages, and digital editing systems to create their individual film projects. Following production and post-production of each film, students screen their work for their classmates and instructors, and engage in critiques and discussion.

During the second month of the Mumbai filmmaking workshop each student writes, directs, and edits a final film of up to 10 minutes. Students have a pre-production period to cast, scout locations, plan their final films, and meet with instructors for one-on-one consultation.

At the end of the Mumbai filmmaking workshop, the final films are celebrated in a screening open to cast, crew, friends and family. All students who successfully complete the workshop receive a New York Film Academy certificate and leave the program with a copy of their work.


The 4-Week Acting for Film Workshop in Mumbai provides students with a strong foundation of acting skills with a specific focus on acting for film. Many students find the one-month length fits conveniently into their yearly schedules. The workshop is full-time. Students must be prepared to live and breathe the program during their enrollment.

Classes emphasize the basic elements of the craft of acting using Stanislavski's System, scene study, and monologue work as starting points. In conjunction with these classes, students participate in courses aimed specifically at training the actor for the technical requirements of acting on a film set.

Previous acting experience is not a requirement. The program begins with the fundamentals, allowing novices to quickly build their skills and more experienced actors to shore up any weaknesses.

To enroll and guarantee your place in this workshop, you may apply online or by mail and submit a $500 deposit that will be applied towards tuition. Full payment is due at least one month prior to the start of the workshop.
