Beyond the theory and history of cinema, the New York Film Academy places an emphasis on hands-on experience. Students gain invaluable experience directing and shooting their own films and serving as integral crew members on other students’ films. In their numerous projects, students take on roles such as director, cinematographer, writer and editor and experience first-hand what it’s like to be a part of a film production. This hands-on experience in writing, directing, shooting, and editing is a large part of what makes the New York Film Academy the best film school for so many students.
