The New York Film Academy offers an intense program for those interested in Acting, Filmmaking, and other related courses. The professors are great and they help you get one step closer of pursuing your goals of filmmaking. Upon graduation you will be experienced none the less having graduated fom a school that prides itself on a "learn by doing" curriculum.

I think it's a great school. No school is perfect, what I've learned at NYFA is more than acting, it's reality itself.

It is great, I am very happy. The only thing I need is money to keep on paying the program. With my career, I will start a Psychiatric and Psychologic Foundation that will give free support to people that have low or zero income. I've wanted to be an actress since I was 4 and help others with my skills.

Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2016

The teachers are working professionals and therefore, we learn a lot from the class and from their practical experience. The courses are designed to give an overall view and better understanding of what your job as a producer, director, or anyone else on the set entails. This is a great school to be a part of.

Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the pros are that the MFA Producing Program really prepares you to become an independent producer in the industry. I have learned a lot and they provide opportunities to help me jumpstart my career towards becoming an independent producer. Cons are that scheduling is a hassle and they have some kinks to work out in the program to make it run more efficiently.

Extremely intensive workload with plenty of practical, hands-on experience. Well rounded program touching on every area of filmmaking. Very diverse student body from across the world.

We have very long days (usually 7 to 10 hours) and have to learn scripts and read plays after that but if you're passionate about acting it's definitely worth it. We also can't be late... after 7 minutes you're not allowed to come in the classroom and have to wait until break. But all of that is a very preparation for the real life of a working actor. Most of the teachers are also very passionate about acting and know what they are taking about even though there are a few exceptions. The school is pretty expensive and it's hard to find financial aid but it's worth it in my opinion.

The biggest pros are that there is a lot of experience work, which is very good in my career goals. The cons are that not that much high professional teachers.

New York Film Academy is a really professional school for student to study films. It provides professional equipment and great instructors to help students. The only cons I would says that I wish we could have more intern and work information.
