New York Film Academy
Top Film School in 2022 by "Variety"
Many of today’s top filmmakers consider the New York Film Academy the best hands-on film school in the world. Their student body is remarkably diverse. Across New York City, Los Angeles, and South Beach campuses, their students represent over 120 different nationalities. This diversity adds to the creative atmosphere and fosters a unique artistic community.
The New York Film Academy was founded by veteran producer Jerry Sherlock in 1992, who produced such classics as “The Hunt for the Red October“. Inspired by the idea that to learn how to make movies, one must actually make movies, Sherlock and his colleagues designed a truly unique curriculum. Blending a mixture of traditional film school instruction with a new approach, the Academy emphasizes coursework based on 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 crewmembers on their fellow classmates’ films to gain extensive on-set experience.
This commitment to learning by doing applies to all of the programs the Academy now offers, with students working with industry-standard equipment in world-class facilities. At the Academy, students can choose from a wide range of visual and performing arts programs that include Filmmaking, Acting for Film, 3D Animation & Visual Effects, Broadcast Journalism, Cinematography, Digital Editing, Documentary Filmmaking, Game Design, Musical Theatre, Photography, Producing, and Screenwriting.
