Opening Doors for the Next Generation of Storytellers

Continuing on his mission to transform Yonkers into a hub for global production activities, Robert Halmi helped to create the Yonkers Public Schools Foundation for Education. At the center of the Foundation’s efforts is Halmi’s vision for establishing a new high school level trade school focusing on film and television production, which will be named after his father, Hollywood’s legendary Robert Halmi Sr. The Robert Halmi Sr. Academy of Film and Television will underscore Halmi’s dedication to Yonkers by offering access to education and training in film and television production to diverse and underprivileged public school students. The school will open doors and provide incredible opportunities for our next generation of storytellers and industry professionals in the city of Yonkers starting in the fall of 2024. The impact of Robert Halmi’s efforts extends far beyond Hollywood as he continues to enrich communities and paves the way for the future of our children.
