BURBANK INTL FILM FESTIVAL AND NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY JOIN FORCES.

 

BURBANK, CA  Senior Executives of both the Burbank International Film Festival and the New York Film Academy met recently at Universal Studios to discuss ways and means the two prestigious entities might work together to the benefit of the art of film making.  Both sides recognized that a powerful synergy existed between the two.  The Burbank International Film Festival offered dramatically reduced submission fees to students of the New York Film Academy and invited the Academy to fully participate in the film festival including the presentation of seminars to festival participants.

The New York Film Academy agreed to provide the Burbank International Film Festival with at least one full scholarship to one of the Academy’s short courses.  This gracious offer will be used by the festival in its fund raising efforts.
Both organizations agreed to continuing discussions on the many ways they can grow their mutual relationship and enhance the overall value to local film makers and the film industry at large.
The Burbank International Film Festival is in its third year.  Further information about the Burbank International Film Festival is available at www.burbankfilmfestival.org<http://www.burbankfilmfestival.org/.  The New York Film Academy is a rapidly growing and prestigious film making and acting school with campuses worldwide, including Los Angeles and New York.  Further information about the New York Film Academy is available at their website: www.nyfa.edu <http://www.nyfa.edu/> .
