New York Film Academy - School of Film and Acting (NYFA) is an international film school and acting school based in New York City. The NY Film Academy was founded in 1992 by Jerry Sherlock, a former film, television and theatre producer. The New York Film Academy's philosophy is based on a "learning by doing" approach with intensive, hands-on training. NYFA founder Jerry Sherlock explained to the New York Times in 2005 that he opened the school after learning from parents and older relatives of aspiring young filmmakers that they needed practical experience.
