The founding of the first accredited film school in the Middle East, NYFA-Abu Dhabi, will create a unique platform for the nurturing of young creative talent and develop a vibrant film industry for the region centred in Abu Dhabi. This collaboration between ADACH and New York film Academy is the first initiative of its kind in this part of the world.
The New York Film Academy is the largest film school and international centre for film training in the world. It maintains two principal campuses, in New York and Los Angeles, and has other training locations around the globe.
The NYFA was founded in 1992 as a practical, total immersion alternative to the traditional classroom-based film education. It was founded on the belief that the highest quality education in filmmaking should be accessible to anyone with the drive and ambition to make films.
Students at NYFA-Abu Dhabi will learn about all aspects of the film industry – creative and technical. Courses will include the film industry, acting, scenario writing, 3D animation, production and documentary film making. Class size is limited to enhance interaction between students and staff, and visits from celebrities from the world of cinema will bring the reality of the film industry into the classroom.
This exciting collaboration between ADACH and NYFA will play a pivotal role in the development of film-making skills and enrich the cultural life of the Gulf and Middle East for years to come.
