New York Film Academy is conducting Master Classes, Information Sessions, Auditions and Portfolio Reviews for students in Bogotá.



Information Sessions offer the opportunity to learn about our programs, locations, student life, and enrollment processes.

Auditions & Portfolio Reviews offer NYFA applicants the opportunity to demonstrate their talents for consideration and acceptance into the program and to assess their eligibility for grants or Talent Based Scholarships. Auditions and Portfolios Reviews are not required for most of our short-term or online workshops.

‘Director as Communicator’ Master Class
The role of the director is to identify the central premise of their film and then communicate that vision to crew, cast and ultimately the audience. This workshop will provide insight into how a director fulfills this crucial role. Topics will include but not be limited best practices for working with the creative team and the how & why behind choices directors make for the audience.
