STUDY AT THE NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITIES IN SOUTHPORT

NYFA Gold Coast is proud of our 2000sqm, two-level, state-of-the-art facility co-located at Southport. A jewel of Queensland, Southport is the leading Educational and Creative Arts precinct of the Gold Coast. Due to its proximity to the light rail transport and other student service amenities (libraries, shopping centers, immigration services, cafes and restaurants), this is an ideal and convenient space for our students.

New York Film Academy Australia Gold Coast Campus in Southport

The new facility is located directly across from the Gold Coast Broadwater with a popular waterfront promenade, large estuary and attractive parklands. Perfect for filming. Students also have the opportunity to do production work in the backlot of the internationally renowned Village Roadshow Studios. Adjacent to the Warner Bros. Movie World Theme Park, the Studios offer truly world-class film production facilities. In a vibrant and inspiring location, NYFA Gold Coast students are provided unique hands-on programs that are enhanced by the thriving film industry environment surrounding the School.

Village Roadshow Studios have been the location for many Hollywood films including San Andreas, Unbroken, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, The Shallows, Kong: Skull Island, and Thor: Ragnarok, among many others. All NYFA Australia students study on the backlot, experiencing a working international film studio.

THE GOLD COAST (QUEENSLAND)

“Queensland is recognised as a production paradise and film-friendly state, and we are known internationally for our diverse and unrivalled natural locations, strong financial incentives, world-class facilities and award-winning talent and crew." - Premier of Queensland Annastacia Palaszczuk, 2018

The Gold Coast boasts a stunningly diverse landscape, offering some of the best locations in the world for making and studying film. Golden beaches, tropical rainforests, rugged country, and a modern city skyline are just some of the backdrops that keep the biggest filmmakers in the world coming back to the Gold Coast.

With an average of 300 days of sunshine every year, this region is commonly known as “beautiful one day, perfect the next,” and as a surfer’s paradise.

Famous for its 50-mile coastline of glorious, sandy white beaches, the Gold Coast is also home to about 250,000 acres of world-heritage listed rainforest, filled with exotic animals and plant life.

Some of the largest roller coasters in the southern hemisphere can be found at many of Gold Coast’s exciting theme parks: Warner Bros Movie World, Sea World, Wet’n’Wild and Dreamworld. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary are very popular with visitors.

The film-friendly Gold Coast is truly an essential study destination for students to immerse themselves in Australia’s world-class production industry, gorgeous natural landscapes, unique culture, and relaxed lifestyle.

Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, is a short drive north, and offers easy access to a variety of natural and artistic attractions and scenery, including Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Museum and Sciencentre. The city will soon be home to a brand new $12 million film and television studio, a new venture in Queensland’s continued commitment to a growing entertainment industry. Nearby, beautiful Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast, and Byron Bay are great for weekend getaways.

DAILY SCHEDULE

All programs are run Monday through Friday; however, film projects and production workshops take place on the weekends. In addition, some classes may be held on Saturdays.

The schedules are rigorous, however, students will have the opportunity to explore the nearly infinite cultural offerings around town. The evening workshops meet three evenings a week from 7:15-9:45 p.m. Similar to the full-time course, films are shot on the weekends and some classes may be held on Saturdays.

ENROLLMENT

All NYFA programs have an open enrollment. No previous experience is required. Students who enroll should be prepared to live and breathe their work during the course of their studies. Given the nature of filmmaking and the necessity of working in crews, students must be willing to devote themselves not only to their own projects, but to their classmates' projects as well.

As space is limited, we recommend early application to guarantee a place in the program of your choice.
