New York Film Academy, BFA, Filmmaking

Вступительные требования

All students pursuing an undergraduate Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the New York Film Academy must be proficient in English and have earned a high school diploma (at a minimum) or an acceptable equivalent. In addition to the Supporting Materials required, each applicant must submit a Creative Portfolio to demonstrate the applicant’s ability to take on undergraduate level study and show a potential for success within the profession.

Undergraduate (BFA) applicants must submit the following materials for admission:

  • Completed Undergraduate (BFA) Program Application
  • Application Fee
  • High School Transcript
  • SAT or ACT Scores (for Domestic students only)
  • Narrative Statement
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Creative Portfolio
  • Proof of English Proficiency

*Please note: If you have applied to do your first year of study in New York City and the remaining years in Los Angeles or South Beach in the Degree Program you've applied for, only one application is necessary, and the application requirements will be the same as those above. You will receive two separate acceptance letters for both programs from NYFA - one for the Conservatory Program, and the second for the Degree Program.

The following sections provide detailed information regarding each required application material.

Students must submit a completed graduate program application.

Students must submit a non-refundable $65 application fee, payable online as part of the online application.

All students pursuing an undergraduate degree from the New York Film Academy must submit an official, final high school transcript in order to complete their application. 

Hard copies of official transcripts must be mailed to New York Film Academy directly from the high school in a sealed envelope. 

Students wishing to submit transcripts digitally can do so by contacting their NYFA admissions representative for instructions. Digital transcripts may be submitted using a digital submission service (such as Parchment) or your high school’s own digital delivery service. 

Home-schooled students must submit an official, original transcript accredited by their home state.

GED earners must submit an official, original state-issued high school equivalency certificate.

The New York Film Academy generally does not consider prior experiential learning as a substitute for the transcript requirements described above. 

Students completing high school in a foreign country, where a language other than English is the official language, and who are able to produce an original transcript, must have it translated into English by an education evaluation service that offers translation services.

The New York Film Academy does not have clearly defined, required minimum scores. Above all, our undergraduate programs are intensive, rigorous and specialized, and standardized test scores are not always the most useful factor in predicting success. However, when considered thoughtfully among many other factors, test scores can help give the admissions committee a useful indication of the BFA applicant’s academic strengths and weaknesses.

The narrative statement should be a mature and self-reflective essay (max. 3 typed pages) detailing the applicant’s reasons for pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in their chosen discipline. The essay should take into account the individual’s history, formative creative experiences, contemporary influences and inspirations, and personal artistic dreams.

BFA applicants must submit a minimum of two (2) letters of recommendation verifying the applicant’s ability to successfully take on undergraduate study in the relevant field. Letters must be sealed and stamped, and should be submitted directly to the Admissions Office from the individual writing on the applicant’s behalf.

BFA applicants must submit a creative portfolio, which may include: 

Writing Sample For Filmmaking, Producing & Screenwriting applicants: 

  • Excerpt from an original screenplay, spec or short story (5-page maximum.)
  • 2-3 samples that include any original short stories, articles or persuasive essays relevant to their chosen discipline (5-page maximum).
  • Treatment or outline of a film, webisode or television series concept (2-page maximum.)

Visual Sample for Filmmaking applicants: 

  • 1-2 live-action, fiction or nonfiction film/video submissions on DVD or hyperlink, where the submission can be viewed, regardless of image capture format (20-minute maximum.) Collaborative material is accepted if the candidate details the exact nature of their contribution to the piece.
  • 3-5 sample storyboards or visual designs with a 1-2 page accompanying description.

For Photography applicants: 

  • Photographs (10 maximum), either printed (no larger than 8x10) or jpegs on a CD/DVD (1200 pixels longest side, SRGB, 72dpi), with an accompanying description contextualizing the submission.

For Acting for Film applicants: 

  • A DVD or hyperlink with an introduction and two one-minute contrasting monologues from either a published play or screenplay.
  • Applicants may also choose to make an appointment for an on-campus audition.
    * Acting for Film applicants should select roles that are age and type appropriate.

For 3-D Animation, Game Design & Graphic Design applicants:

  • 3-5 drawings, paintings, cartoons, comics, conceptual illustrations, graphic renderings, digital images, slides of 3-D models, sculptures, or other visual designs which display the applicant’s creative abilities.

All portfolio materials must be submitted with an accompanying description contextualizing the submission and purpose of the project. Portfolio materials will not be returned.

New York Film Academy believes that to be successful in our degree programs an applicant must have a strong command of the English language. Non-U.S. residents or international applicants, for whom English is not their first or native language, who apply to NYFA’s MFA, MA, BFA, BA, AFA, or long-term certificate programs, are asked to provide one of the following as proof of English language proficiency:

  • A TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score iBT of 68 or an IELTS score of 5.5 for AFA, BFA, BA, and Conservatory programs. For the MFA and MA programs, the required score for TOEFL iBT is 79 and IELTS of 6.5.
  • A report from a valid English Language School verifying completion of course level equivalent to a 520 Paper-based TOEFL Score.

Applicants might be eligible to receive an English proficiency waiver under the following conditions:

  • Verification that the applicant has been studying in a college or university where the sole language of instruction is English for at least 1 full year at the time of his or her application; or
  • Verification that the applicant has been studying in a high school where the sole language of instruction is English for at least 3 full years at the time of his or her application.

Applicants who wish to confirm eligibility for a TOEFL/IELTS waiver can contact an admissions representative for assistance.

For short-term and long-term non-degree certificate programs, NYFA will accept a positive language evaluation via phone or Skype in lieu of the other requirements.

PLEASE NOTE: All students will take English assessment tests during the registration period at the beginning the program. Students may be referred to additional English study in an ESL program or a blended program depending on their English level. This may add a semester or more to the time needed to complete the program of study at NYFA.

All courses at all NYFA locations are taught in English.

The New York Film Academy at its sole discretion may evaluate English proficiency in the form of oral and/or written tests in lieu of TOEFL or IELTS scores.

As part of the admissions process, BFA applicants may be required to have an interview by phone or in person with a New York Film Academy representative. The purpose of the interview is to identify the applicant’s goals and prior experience. The ideal applicant has a passion for storytelling, creative expression, and artistic collaboration. The interview is also an opportunity to review the curriculum of the program with the applicant and to ensure that s/he fully understands the level of commitment required to successfully complete the degree.

Once admitted to NYFA, students may pay a deposit to secure their place in the BFA program. The deposit for all long-term programs (one year or longer) is $500, which is applied towards the first term tuition payment. Most of the deposit is refundable except a $100 administrative processing fee.
