The New York Film Academy is a premier visual and performing arts school based in New York City. Jerry Sherlock, a former film, television and theatre producer, known for The Hunt for the Red October (and many other classics), founded the New York Film Academy in 1992. Blending a mixture of traditional film school instruction with a new approach, the Academy emphasizes hands-on learning, though which students must make films or act in them. Over the years, the New York Film Academy has expanded both the scope of its curricula and its global presence, establishing campuses in Los Angeles and Miami—where students can earn a degree—as well as Florence, Italy and Australia, alongside campuses and locations all over the world.
