CHANDIGARH, India, June 5, 2021 — World’s leading and distinguished film school, New York Film Academy (NYFA), today signed an academic MoU with Chandigarh University. As a part of the agreement, Indian students can now pursue globally recognized Under-Graduate 3 years degree in Film Making from New York Film Academy by studying the first year of the program at Chandigarh University while studying the remaining two years at the New York Academy, USA.

The official MoU signing ceremony took place virtually today, where Mr. David Klein, Senior Executive, New York Film Academy, and the Pro-Chancellor, Chandigarh University, and other university officials exchanged the Memorandum of Understanding.

“NYFA is known for imparting hands-on practical learning to the students where they learn every minute aspect of film making. The students will undergo thousands of hours working and creating their content and projects under the guidance of renowned filmmakers, technicians, and experts from Hollywood,” said Prof. Michael Young, President of New York Film Academy. “We introduce the students to various career options in Filmmaking such as Direction, Script Writing, Sound Engineering, Visual Effects, Animation, Camera Handling, Lights and Camera Set-up. They are required to work as a team on small projects,” Prof. Young added.

Prof. Michael Young further said, “Eminent Hollywood directors like Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Mira Nair, Doung Liman are some of the prominent guest faculty that the students who are joining the program would be interacting. The students would have the chance to work with them during their academic learning.” Professor Young explained that the students would learn and work on the latest technology and tools in the International film industry to become experienced and ready when they move out of university and start their careers. He further said, “With digital platforms such as OTT, Social Media taking the lead, the content has become a commodity, and the students have to understand the art of developing quality content which is recognized and appreciated by the global audience.”

The Pro-Chancellor, Chandigarh University, said, “This year, most Indian students might not be able to travel abroad to study due to the prevalent COVID-19 pandemic situation. We at Chandigarh University offer a unique opportunity to the students in India through our International Articulation programs. The students get the global academic learning experience by studying for one or two years in India and then moving to respective Universities in the USA, Australia, and the UK to complete their degree programs. By then the situation will improve for traveling. The other important aspects of the International Articulation Programs are that the students save precious academic years and education costs. During the initial years of the academic program, the student would pay fees per Indian fee structure and also in Indian Currency which saves at least 33% cost incurred in comparison if you pursue the full degree abroad.”
