Learn filmmaking in the NYFA Los Angeles and make dreams come true in a city known for its film industry!
Located in the heart of Hollywood, the New York Film Academy Los Angeles offers acting, film and media degrees, programs and workshops in a variety of visual storytelling disciplines, providing students with endless opportunities to master the basics of the film and entertainment industries. Known as the “Media Capital of the World” and surrounded by the best film studios in Los Angeles — Universal and Warner Bros. — students participate in hands-on production workshops, shooting their projects on the prestigious Universal Studios backlot.
From day one, students are behind the camera or working on software to create their own original works of art. In every film degree course offered on the Los Angeles campus, students receive hands-on education from our prestigious faculty through a combination of in-class lectures, supervised workshops and student-guided projects.
Upon completing a film program or workshop at the NYFA Los Angeles, students earn either a New York Film Academy degree or certificate, depending on the type of program completed. In addition, their work is displayed in an event open to family and friends. Selected industry guests are also invited to showcases for long-term and degree programs.

Designed for actors with all levels of experience, the New York Film Academy’s acting school provides actors with intensive training in screen acting, modern on-camera acting techniques, and supporting acting classes.
Unlike other acting colleges, New York Film Academy places emphasis on providing practical experience and hands-on education to students so they can both develop their craft as actors and excel at acting in front of the camera. Acting for Film instructors are all professional, working actors, writers, directors, and producers—veterans of Hollywood, independent film, and television—who give each student a personal focus in every acting class and teach the rigorous discipline necessary for launching a career in film and television.
Both the Academy’s hands-on approach and attention to application of acting skills to performing make New York Film Academy one of the top acting schools in the nation.

The New York Film Academy boasts a unique curriculum that encourages learning by doing. Throughout their time at the New York Film Academy’s Screenwriting School students will write and workshop scripts in a variety of different genres and styles. From the very first day students will be behind the keyboard, learning to transform their ideas into structured scripts.
In addition, screenwriting students have the unique opportunity to work with fellow screenwriting, filmmaking, and acting students in developing and bringing a script to life in a finished film, providing each student with extensive experience in going through every step of the filmmaking process as it relates to screenwriting. Furthermore, students learn the art of pitching their screenplays to help ensure they are prepared to realize their professional goals once they complete the Academy’s Screenwriting School.

The 4-Week Digital Photography Workshop is an intensive exploration of photography in the digital age. Photography school students are immersed in the art and craft of still photography, and are introduced to the tools necessary to capture great images and refine them through digital imaging.
Photography students at New York Film Academy develop the skills necessary to research, compose, and capture digital photographic projects in a hands-on course. Students are encouraged to be creative, but are also taught to think of each project as a concise statement of artistic and aesthetic intent. They expand their repertoire of techniques with light and shadow as they work with professional lighting and grip hardware, as well as inexpensive and unconventional practical sources of light and shadow.

My daughter went to Film Camp, she really liked everything. Since we from NY, we came to her, everything was fine, living conditions were good. I want to note the organization of the trip, which was at the highest level, even better than we expected!
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 personRead more
