New York Film Academy (NYFA), the regionally accredited College of Visual and Performing Arts, is designed for a new generation of storytellers – artists who share a driving passion and want to learn by doing, creating their own projects in a hands-on environment. Students operate industry-standard equipment and software all under the guidance of award-winning faculty who remain active in their fields.
NYFA is honored to be the film and acting school of choice for many Hollywood filmmakers’ families, including Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, and Jodie Foster.
Students from over 120 countries and all walks of life choose from NYFA’s rich variety of accelerated degree, conservatory, or workshop programs, at campuses in New York City, Los Angeles, and South Beach, Miami; Gold Coast, Australia; and a year-round study abroad location in Florence, Italy. Summer workshops are also offered at Harvard University and Paris.
