The New York Film Academy first opened its doors to students in Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Film Center. Operating under the philosophy that a top quality education in filmmaking should be available to any person with the drive and ambition to make films, the New York Film Academy (NYFA) offers students an innovative curriculum, award-winning instructors and access to professional equipment. The New York Film Academy is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and licensed by the New York State Education Department.
The New York Film Academy's School of Film and Acting is honored to be the school of choice of many luminaries in the film industry who have sent their family members to study with us. They include Steven Spielberg, Al Pacino, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, Jodie Foster, Kevin Kline, Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, Bono(U2), directors Stephen Frears, Peter Bogdonavich, Roger Donaldson and James L. Brooks among others.
The Academy quickly moved into its own New York facilities in Manhattan's Union Square and in Soho and opened a Hollywood campus on the Universal Studios back lot. The New York Film Academy continues to successfully pursue its goal of making film education available to artists everywhere. In addition to hosting programs in half a dozen cities across the United States, NYFA has since established locations all over Europe and Asia. In a groundbreaking move, the Academy brought its unique curriculum, exceptional faculty and top-of-the-line film and editing equipment to Abu Dhabi, UAE, to open the first accredited film school in the Middle East in partnership with the Crown Prince.
NYFA’s arsenal of educational programs has grown considerably since the school’s inception. Serving over 6000 students each year, the school now offers a multitude of intensive hands-on programs of various lengths and academic concentrations. The school’s conservatory programs include: Filmmaking, Acting for Film, Producing, Screenwriting, Journalism, 3D Animation, Documentary Film, Photography, Musical Theatre and Cinematography.
The New York Film Academy also runs programs for those who wish to earn advanced degrees. Students can earn a Master of Fine Arts in Filmmaking, Acting for Film, Producing, Cinematography, Photography and Screenwriting, as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Filmmaking. The school also runs joint degree programs with the Beijing Film Academy and Shanghai Theatre Academy.
During the summer, the New York Film Academy holds short-term programs for high school students and young people from 10 to 13 years of age at campuses around the world. Along with NYFA’s New York and Universal Studios locations and Disney Studios in Florida, esteemed institutions such as Harvard University, Oxford, Cambridge, Yale, Princeton University, UCLA, KAIST University in Korea and the Catholic University of Porto in Portugal have hosted the film school’s academic camps.
NYFA has hosted film and arts programs in cooperation with The Guggenheim Museum, The Whitney, The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum and The Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. The Cultural Ministry of the Vatican commissioned the New York Film Academy to establish a two-year Master of Fine Arts Degree program in filmmaking entitled "Filming the Ineffable."The New York Film Academy frequently designs special filmmaking programs for organizations such as the U.S. Armed Forces, the New York City public schools and Sony Animation and has partnered with many prestigious cultural institutions to offer film education to its surrounding community.
Our instructors are working professionals who consistently receive the extraordinary praise from our students. Our faculty has received graduate and undergraduate degrees from NYU, Columbia University, UCLA, USC, the American Film Institute, Harvard, Yale, Stanford and Princeton, amongst other respected institutions.
Filmmaking students often find that the films they produced in school will go on to gain recognition and honors at domestic and international film festivals before they have even graduated, and alumni discover that the connections they make at NYFA and the experience they gain will power them through the industry onto more compelling projects. Acting students take off in the business with the performance and audition training they receive at the New York Film Academy and go on to work in television, theater and film with the confidence necessary to make an impression in a competitive industry.
