New York Film Academy Sydney Program


Operating since 2013, NYFA Sydney is currently located in the education precinct of Sydney. Sydney has served as the location for numerous blockbusters, including The Great Gatsby, The Matrix, Babe, Wolverine, Mad Max: The Road Warrior, and Mission Impossible II. Because Sydney is an extraordinary city steeped in the film industry, NYFA Sydney students become immersed in filmmaking and acting from their very first day.

NYFA Sydney, much like our Gold Coast (Queensland) Campus, offers long-term and semester programs in Filmmaking, Acting for Film, Screenwriting, Documentary Film, Producing, and Animation. We also offer 8-week, 4-week, and 1-week programs in Filmmaking & Acting for Film courses. Students learn from award-winning and internationally-recognized instructors and professional filmmakers, as well as collaborate with classmates from all around the world. Students from many disciplines find great value in NYFA's study abroad programs. Because NYFA Sydney provides students with a hands-on and intensive arts education, students are able to learn lifelong, universally applicable skills like crafting a narrative, confidence, and creativity. Please note: Space in NYFA Sydney programs is limited and demand is high. We recommend that prospective students apply early to secure a space.

New York Film Academy, Sydney

After spending one year at NYFA, Sydney I've gained a lot of experience.

First of all, dedicating a year to study Screenwriting has been amazing. I took time to live in a country I love and study something I'm passionated about. Who wouldn't want to do that?

If it wasn't for coming here I wouldn't have met the people I've met or have found a new place to call home. But I honestly don't think the aftermath is the only thing that's important. You will grow so much as a person. Some moments might be tough but most of them will become the best memories you have.

If you ever thought about traveling or studying abroad then you should do it. Not only will the experience and what you learn be something you will keep with you for the rest of your life. But you will also never have to worry what could've been.
