"There is no better way to become a filmmaker than to simply start making films"
New York Film Academy
The New York Film Academy is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and in China, the Chinese Education Department. The NYFA was founded in 1992 by Jerry Sherlock, a former film, television and theatre producer. Their philosophy is based on a "learning by doing" approach, which every curriculum stems from. They offer an intensive, hands-on, and total immersion approach to learning. Students come from all over the world to learn and work together, which creates a rich exchange of culture and ideas, and builds an international network for their graduates. The Film Academy is also honored to be the film school of choice for many Hollywood filmmakers, actors, and figures from the entertainment and media world. Every year, hundreds of Chinese students join the NYFA summer camps.
From 2016, the New York Film Academy will work with ASDAN China to offer high school summer film programs at the Beijing Film Academy. Chinese students will be able to enjoy some of the best American film education in China.
