By New York Film Academy   Reviews (1)   100% Rating

Nestled in the heart of the Haidian district of Beijing, NYFA Beijing’s unique intensive 4-week Filmmaking program is taught by award winning and internationally recognized instructors and professional filmmakers.

Beijing is an exciting city with a lively history of culture and power. As with all NYFA study abroad programs, the city becomes our students’ classroom. Since 2010, NYFA Filmmakers and Actors alike have been encouraged to become immersed in the bustling city of Beijing and get inspired by the unique culture. Beijing’s blend of ancient history and modern landscape creates the perfect backdrop for NYFA student films.

NYFA’s programs are valuable to students from nearly all disciplines. After all, NYFA Beijing students learn the universal skills of storytelling, confident presenting, and creativity.

Please note: Space in NYFA Beijing is limited and demand is high. We recommend that prospective students apply early to secure a space.

Fun and Hands-on program


It’s a great way to experience the film industry. It tells a lot about how the actual industry works and you can get a feel from it. The classes at New York Film Academy offers editing, lighting, sound sync, directing and writing. So for those students who would like to attend in or be involved in this workshop, I highly recommend you join this big group and have a fun time, because it provides you with extended knowledge and skills to be a good director or cinematographer.

The instructors are very helpful. They spent a lot of their time helping students inside and outside the class. If the students have questions they will be there to help no matter how the situation and time. I will definitely choose New York Film Academy. It’s very hands-on, very practical and it will help you get started.
