Study Abroad with NYFA

Hands-On Filmmaking and Acting Programs

NYFA’s study abroad programs in Filmmaking and Acting for Film offer adventurous, ambitious students the chance to broaden their horizons as they develop their identity as artists. By studying at one of NYFA’s international locations, students immerse themselves in a truly cross-cultural educational experience and challenge themselves academically and artistically while building a network of other creatives from around the world.

Through our innovative curriculum and methodology of learning-by-doing, students build vital skills in communication, collaboration, and visual storytelling. This process also helps students develop essential transferable skills. In our programs, students focus on creating short films and video content for their reels.

NYFA offers study abroad programs available at our NYFA Florence and NYFA Australia campuses, as well as satellite locations in Paris and Beijing and Greater China.

NYFA offers short-term or semester-long study abroad programs in Filmmaking and Acting for Film. Designed for aspiring visual storytellers, these programs are focused and intensive, requiring participants to work with self-discipline, energy, and commitment. All of NYFA’s programs are taught in English. Our programs are offered during the academic year and in the summer.


NYFA’s faculty are all working professionals who are experienced filmmakers and actors. Because of NYFA’s small class sizes, students will benefit from the direct mentorship and guidance of instructors.


Annually, dozens of U.S. college and university students choose to study on a NYFA Study Abroad program as well as students from around the world. Students over the age of 18 and who have graduated secondary school are eligible to apply to NYFA’s short-term adult programs.*
