The Academy strives to create an environment that promotes personal development and learning over competition. In keeping with this philosophy, the New York Film Academy takes pride in its open door policy of admission. Students from diverse backgrounds, from all countries and from all walks of life are welcome. Our acting, animation and film schools nurture a supportive, positive atmosphere conducive to the level of collaboration required to make a great film.

Learning to be a filmmaker, actor, or animator is not done "by the numbers." It is done by immersion in the process and by knowing the "whys" that teach the "hows." It is done by hands-on experience, trial and error, feedback and correction, and questions and answers. By working in a series of projects and by working hands-on almost every day, students will learn by doing.

Above all, our acting, animation and film school's students are storytellers. Film directors are confronted with a number of visual, dramatic, and technical challenges. Film actors face the awesome challenge of bringing these stories to life by creating living, breathing characters. 3-D animators must create an imaginary world and characters of their own design. The Film Academy's workshops encourage students to work through these challenges; to empower students to artfully tell their stories.
