Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

New York Film Academy's (NYFA) Paris program offers hands-on and intensive Filmmaking and Acting For Film programs at one of the most prestigious film schools in the world: the National Film School of France (La Fémis). NYFA Paris was established in 1996, and courses are taught by award-winning and internationally recognized instructors and professional filmmakers. Currently, we offer 1-week, 3-weeks, 4-weeks, & 6-weeks Filmmaking & Acting for Film programs.

While students immerse themselves in their work, they will also immerse themselves in Parisian culture. NYFA Paris is located in the historic Montmartre district and students are encouraged to use the city as a backdrop for their films and stories. Whether they’re speaking with locals to find the perfect location or learning about the city history, students are out and experiencing Paris on a daily basis.

NYFA Paris programs attract students from all over the world. U.S. students, in particular, have the opportunity to learn from, study with, and create with students from many different countries, and have extensive opportunities for both personal and professional growth.


Due to the variety of global students, U.S. students on any NYFA study abroad program, will not be studying in an American “bubble” as in many programs. Also, like all of our Study Abroad programs, NYFA Paris is not just beneficial for acting & filmmaking students, but for students of all disciplines looking for the benefits of a hands-on arts education or to improve presentation & storytelling skills.

NYFA is proudly affiliated with Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts, which is regionally accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) & is the school of record for NYFA’s international programs in Gold Coast, Sydney, Paris, Florence, Beijing, & Shanghai.
