What I love about the New York Film academy is the networking opportunities that are given within the building. If you show up and try, the teachers are always there to lead the way for you. The teachers all currently work in the industry and are a way;king encyclopedia.

I would not recommend New York Film Academy for any program longer than 8 weeks or so. Really, I would not recommend New York Film Academy for almost anything. It is a for profit school that preys off the obliviousness of foreign students looking to come to New York for the "experience" of New York...without knowing that the school has a garbage reputation in NY and charges about double what other schools charge. It is only useful for the 60% or so foreign students who do not have a film school to study at in their own countries possibly so for those people it MIGHT be useful. For anyone from this country, actually trying to direct or act in film in NYC or not, do not, do NOT go to NYFA.
A few good teachers but overall they're very aloof. Classes almost always end early because the teachers just said what they needed to say, didn't elaborate, and just dismissed. There's quite a variety of courses, I'll say that. And my class, personally, was gorgeously small. HOWEVER! It's pathetic that most equipment we needed was like...not available. Or they just didn't have it. You'd think a film school would have either enough props/camera/sound equipment/other stuff for AT LEAST the filmmaking program. But nope!
