We are a culturally diverse filmmaking community located in the historical heart of Harlem in New York City.
Our students have won a record number of student Academy Awards, and their films have screened in competition at prestigious film festivals including Sundance, Tribeca and Berlin. This year, the 19 thesis films being showcased represent work by directors from Egypt, China, India, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Denmark and Taiwan, making this a truly international film festival.
