Filmmaking Workshops

Hands-On Workshops at NYFA’s Film School

In the filmmaking workshops, students learn to write, shoot, direct, and edit their own films and video content using professional grade equipment and software. As these programs are short-term, students rapidly learn the fundamentals of filmmaking through intensive hands-on production experience, as well as in-class instruction and coursework.


NYFA offers a range of in-person filmmaking workshops at our campuses and satellite locations. To learn more about the curriculum and projects in each workshop, please visit the individual pages below. Explore examples of projects NYFA filmmaking students typically complete on the filmmaking projects page.


In addition to our in-person workshops, NYFA has a variety of online filmmaking workshops. These workshops are a great fit for filmmakers, directors, and content creators who want to gain experience creating their own films from the comfort of their own home.
