Experience, experience, experience! NYFA gave me the opportunity to work with other like-minded creative exciting people.


– Actress Aubrey Plaza
(“Parks & Recreations,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”), Film Camp 2001

NYFA was the first exposure I got to any kind of formal education in filmmaking. It was my “ABC’s” – the first steps I took to make movies professionally. There’s no doubt that what I learned at NYFA helped.


– Director Jonathan Jakubowicz
(“Hands of Stone”), Filmmaking 1997

NYFA was the toughest year of my life. It was very hands-on and I am thankful as that kind of [fast] pace prepared me to enter the field.
