New York, April 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The New York Film Academy (NYFA) has been named as one of Variety’s Top Film Schools for 2020, for the fourth consecutive year running. The Entertainment Education Impact Report: The Top Film Schools and Educators From Around the Globe annually lists Variety’s selections of the leading 50 academic filmmaking institutions worldwide. 

This year, the report was designed to identify colleges that are not only “preparing their students for successful careers in the entertainment biz”, but are also guiding them with “structure and encouragement and artistic expertise” through rigorous coursework and instruction, specifically mentioning schools that have implemented remote learning techniques to keep students engaged through the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The article commended NYFA’s range of creative disciplines that “span all forms and platforms,” beyond filmmaking. The piece also recognized the plethora of programs at NYFA, which include fine arts degrees, graduate opportunities, conservatories, as well as youth programs. In addition to NYFA’s programs and disciplines, the article praised NYFA’s faculty and staff, who are industry professionals actively working in their respective fields.

Additionally, the 2017 article reviewed the accomplishments of NYFA graduates who had gone on to screen films at Sundance, Toronto, Cannes, SXSW, and Venice film festivals. Recent NYFA alumni have gone on to work on the Netflix documentary series “Tiger King” and Awkwafina’s award-winning film “The Farewell.”

“We are honored by Variety’s continued recognition of New York Film Academy,” said Michael Young, President of NYFA. “Our inclusion on this list is due to the hard work and creativity of our exceptional faculty and staff, who continue to find new and inventive ways to keep our students optimistic and motivated during this challenging time.”
