The purpose of New York Student Film Student
Alliance is to bring together students from the
dozens of New York universities and colleges
from Long Island to Niagara, the Adirondacks to
the Southern Tier, and all points in between,
which are offering production majors or minors
in film or television production. Collaboration
across the state will only strengthen our
students’ future employment and diversify their
The long term goal for the New York Film Student
Alliance is to have “non for profit” status.
This will allow NYSFA to collect membership dues
and donations that will be used to fund
scholarships, filmmaking grants, workshops,
festivals, and summits.
This summit, will give students access to local
filmmakers and to workshops that educated them
on aspects of the industry not normally covered
in traditional film and television courses.
The New York Film Student Alliance Summit is
supported by the New York State Governor’s
Office of Motion Picture and Television
Development and has paved the way to the
Saturday, December 6, 2014 event and it is our
hope that you accept our invitation and join us
for this exciting intercollegiate launch.
This year, the City University of New York at
Kingsborough Community College will serve as the
anchor school transmitting the keynote to the
participating colleges and universities.
