The Entertainment Education Report: The Best Film Schools of 2019 lists the industry’s top 50 academic institutions and educators around the world, including entries from Beijing to London to Mexico City. The piece details the colleges that offer “cutting-edge instruction” and offer students the tools needed to create, innovate, and influence the industry.

That year’s list also made special mention of the school’s alumni projects, calling out, “Work produced by NYFA graduates has been screened at Cannes, Sundance, Toronto, Venice and SXSW film festivals.”
