The International Film Institute of New York

The International Film Institute of New York was created to provide an intensive and comprehensive training in the art and craft of cinematic story telling at an affordable price. Workshops in screenwriting, directing, editing, and producing lead to the making by each student of his or her own short film and working in various capacities on each others films.

In addition to the technical disciplines and aesthetic principles of filmmaking which will be taught and discussed, students will be able to watch and discuss classic films to get a sense of the historical context in which motion pictures are woven into our society.

Filmmaking - narrative, documentary or experimental - is a collaborative endeavor and students at the IFI will learn the crafts of cinema, as well as the skill of collaboration; lessons that will serve them in the filmmaking industry.

TEACHING... Our goal at the IFI is to provide a high quality education in all aspects of filmmaking including but not limited to screenwriting, directing, editing, cinematography, and producing. The intensive, hands–on nature of our classes provide a firm foundation for students who intend to pursue professional careers in the motion picture or television industry or those who intend to go on to graduate school. Our small class size of sixteen, guarantees each student an appropriate amount of one on one time with faculty.

FACULTY... We believe that the quality of the instruction team is the key element in providing the best possible learning experience. Accordingly our faculty includes award winning working professionals who pass on their academic knowledge, and share their real world experience as well.

CURRICULUM... While our programs emphasize content over equipment, the IFI believes it is important to understand the tools of the trade. The six-week workshop is designed around state of the art technologies rather than outmoded systems still taught in other film schools and workshops, although no longer in use in the motion picture industry.
