Designed equally for beginning actors as well as those with
experience, the Academy’s acting school provides actors with intensive training in screen
acting, modern on-camera acting
techniques, and supporting acting classes, which contribute
to the creation of a filmed performance and have helped NYFA become widely recognized as one of the top acting schools.
Unlike other acting colleges, the emphasis at the New York Film Academy is on providing practical experience and hands-on education to our students so that not only do they develop their craft as actors, but excel at acting in front of the camera. Our Acting for Film instructors are all professional, working actors, writers, directors, and producers—veterans of Hollywood, independent film, and television—who give each student the personal focus and teach the rigorous discipline necessary for launching a career in film and television.
It is the Academy’s hands-on approach and the attention to the application of acting skills to performing in front of the camera that make the Academy one of the best acting schools in the country.
