6-Week Holiday Filmmaking Workshop

Hands-On Film Workshops at NYFA

The 6-Week Holiday Filmmaking Workshop brings students through the fundamentals of film, helping them learn the creative and technical skills they need to be a confident director. The program is a great fit for new filmmakers, with classes and projects specifically designed to understand the art and technique of visual storytelling.

Program DescriptionProgram Name: 6-Week Special Holiday Filmmaking Workshop

This workshop follows the six-week filmmaking workshop curriculum, and during the program, students write, direct, and digitally edit three short films. The 6-Week Special Holiday Filmmaking Workshop runs from early December until late January with a two-week holiday break in the middle. Many students use the two-week break to work on the preproduction of their final film. This workshop is offered at a discounted rate.

Throughout the course, students may get one-on-one consultations from instructors, and will receive constructive critique from the other students in the program. The workshop ends with a screening of their final film, where students can invite family and friends to view their work. Many graduates of the 6-Week Special Holiday Filmmaking Workshop often continue their studies by enrolling in our 1-Year Filmmaking Program.
