Program Overview

Students in the New York Film Academy’s Screenwriting Programs generate a lot of written material, building a portfolio of writings that span several mediums. In the AFA degree program, the focus is on the two main fields available to writers in the industry today: feature films and television.

Upon completion of the program, students not only understand story structure, character, conflict, and dialogue, but also leave the Academy with finished products that they can pitch, produce, and try to sell.

In the AFA Screenwriting Program, students are taught the art of screenwriting through workshop courses that have them learn by writing, as well as through skill-building courses that focus on film history, film genres, and specific skills like adaptation and character building.

Students also study filmmaking, acting, and editing to get a complete sense of how cinematic stories are told. In addition to writing stories, treatments, and scripts, students will also create, direct, and edit their own short film.
