Summer Shorts is now RiseUp!

At NYFA we are immensely proud of the opportunities we can provide to young actors and filmmakers to create their own films.

Members complete our training programmes of SetReady or Breakthrough Into acting to demonstrate their professionalism and practical skills. As well as providing the practical experience that can improve their chance of gaining employment in the film industry, graduates can then submit applications to create a short film independently.

Formerly known as Summer Shorts, the RiseUp programme has been enhanced to allow members to further develop their skills and experience as well as demonstrating their potential to be considered as one of our Emerging Brits.

As with all our programmes, RiseUp combines both online and on-location elements. The final films are eligible to be screened at a red carpet event in October. NYFA will then support groups as they market and promote their film.
