School Notes:

  • The Academy was founded in 1992 on a belief that a top qualify education in filmmaking should be accessible to anyone with the drive and ambition to make films. The Academy opened its doors in 1992 in Robert DeNiro‘s Tribeca Film Center. Since that time we have grown into our own facilities in Manhattan‘s Union Square and Soho. We also opened Film Academies at Universal Studios in Los Angeles and King‘s College in London, England. We hold One-Year and short-term programs throughout the year in these locations. During the summer we offer our short-term programs at a number of additional locations, including Harvard University; Princeton University; Disney-MGM Studios-Florida; Paris, France; and Florence, Italy.
  • The New York Film Academy was designed for a new generation of filmmakers, screenwriters, actors, producers and animators who share a passion for motion pictures and want to learn by making their own projects in a hands-on, intensive program.
  • Filmmaking demands the integration of many kinds of knowledge. It is the integration of knowledge that distinguishes the New York Film Academy from many other film schools. In our courses students learn not only how to operate a camera, light a scene, or edit film. They learn how all the aspects of filmmaking relate to, interact with, and depend upon each other.
  • We provide students with the opportunity to learn directing by doing just that - directing. Students are challenged to make creative decisions that in some way, great or small, contribute to the drama of their films. We encourage students to explore the various ways of expressing an idea or a thought through moving images.
  • The Academy offers intensive hands-on programs in filmmaking, acting for film, producing, screenwriting, and 3-D animation. The course length ranges from one week to one year. Most of our programs have open admissions and do not require previous experience, however they all demand passion, commitment, and drive. Our workshops challenge students to develop their creative skill to the fullest extent possible.
