" 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. It was very emotional for me to shoot a scene with Robert De Niro and Ellen Barkin, two legendary New Yorkers, a few blocks from the school. It definitely felt like those two moments in my life, being a film student and directing my dream movie, were connected."

Jonathan Jakubowicz
Director of 'Hands of Stone'
starring Robert De Niro
