The film school of international repute, New York Film Academy (NYFA), is set to launch a full-fledged India campus. Interestingly, the venue chosen for the same is Greater Noida, a satellite town of Delhi, as opposed to Mumbai, home to Bollywood. The first batch will commence in January 2013 and offer the same courses, faculty, facilities and equipment as the New York City campus. Some of the prominent NYFA alumni include Steven Spielberg, Mira Nair and Garry Marshall. "There is a massive pool of untapped talent across the Subcontinent and South East Asia and our objective is to reach them through our new campus," said NYFA vice-president Kitty Koo.
