One of the top prizes of NYFA is a trip to the Warner Bros. Studios, Hollywood – flights and accommodations included!

Home to the film sets and exhibits for Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, The Greatest Showman, and many many more, a trip around the Warner Bros. Studios takes you truly behind the scenes, where you will get to see what the director sees.
