I got my MFA from the New York Film Academy last year and I would highly recommend this school to everybody. The teachers are great, the program is intensive. Whoever is against this school- should try a few other schools at first, instead of saying bad things. They will be back to NYFA.

I personally didn't have any problems in two years, and used all the equipment/ library/electives all the time. Plus, I built my demo reel from the projects we filmed at NYFA. I learned a lot about the industry and started getting work offers while I was still a student. It's true that the school doesn't assist you in finding a job. However, If you are active and use your potential fully, you won't need any help anyway. NYFA has great connections and you meet lots of talented people around all the time. The teachers are very respectful and understanding working professionals.

I attended the One Year Filmmaking program at New York Film Academy (LA) and I achieved what I set out to do -- Learn to make movies. I had no film or digital filmmaking experience when I entered the school. The only way I feel I could learn anything more of true value is to keep making movies.

The school is not perfect, but no school is perfect. However, this is probably the BEST school for someone to learn from the ground up. Other schools require a portfolio, when after all, we are coming to these institutions to learn. Also, there were students who transferred from other schools and told me they learned more in six months here than two years elsewhere (at least five direct sources).

Anyway, my main purpose for writing this is because I felt everything about the program was exactly what I needed.

We had a lot of classroom sessions, but the school is all about learning by doing. It's the most realistic way to learn an art form, but beware of some traditional universities who may not accept any of your credits if you are planning to transfer ... The program is so demanding that I even recall a time when we were in classes from 9 a.m. to midnight -- compared to five hours in a week at a typical university.
