New York Film Academy - School of Film and Acting (NYFA) is a for-profit film school and acting school based in New York City. The NY Film Academy was founded in 1992 by Jerry Sherlock, a former film, television and theatre producer.[1] It was originally located at the Tribeca Film Center. In 1994, NYFA moved to the former Tammany Hall building in Union Square. Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Al Pacino, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, and Jodie Foster are among the many figures in the film industry who have sent their family members to study at the New York Film Academy. We are honored to be the film and acting school of choice of these other luminaries including Kevin Kline, Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon andTim Robbins, Bono(U2), directors Stephen Frears, Peter Bogdonavich, Roger Donaldson and James L. Brooks.

The New York Film Academy was founded on the philosophy that "learning by doing" combined with best industry practices is more valuable than years of theoretical study for filmmakers and actors. This educational model allows students to achieve more in less time than at all other film or acting schools in the world.

As of 2012, the school has 400+ employees and over 7,000 students per year. NYFA offers master, bachelor, and associate degrees, as well as 1 and 2-year conservatory programs and short-term workshops in filmmaking, acting for film, photography, 3D animation, game design, producing, screenwriting, digital filmmaking, cinematography, documentary, broadcast journalism, musical theatre, music video, digital editing, graphic design, and illustration programs at various locations throughout the world.

NYFA founder Jerry Sherlock explained to theNew York Times in 2005[4] that he opened the school after hearing interest from parents and older relatives of aspiring young filmmakers, and that he wanted to focus on practical experience.

NYFA's programs include film directing, film producing, screenwriting, cinematography, film editing, documentary filmmaking, acting,animation, photography, game design, musical theatre, graphic design, and illustration.
