New York Film Academy (NYFA) is a filmmaking and performing arts school founded in 1992. Inspired by the idea that to learn how to make movies, one must actually make movies. Blending a mixture of traditional film school instruction with a new approach, the Academy emphasises coursework based around students actually going out and shooting films as part of their coursework. Students write, produce, direct, and edit their own original films while also serving as crew members on their fellow classmates’ films to gain extensive on-set experience. The New York Film Academy is considered the best hands-on film school in the world by many of today's top filmmakers.
It is a WSCUC-accredited leading film, media, and performing arts college that offers hands-on intensive undergraduate and graduate degree programs, certificates, and online and on-campus workshops across a multitude of areas of study. NYFA has also a wide range of summer and winter programs for high school students.
It is among the Top 30 Film Schools in the USA according to Variety. Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Al Pacino, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, and Jodie Foster are among the many figures in the film industry who have sent their family members to study at NYFA. Guest speakers include Kim Cattrall, Seth Rogen, Kevin James, Glenn Close, Bryan Cranston, Rachel Maddow, Jamie Lee Curtis, J. K. Simmons, Mira Nair, Russell Hornsby, William Wegman, and many more.
