The JBFC's new 27,000-square-foot Media Arts Lab opened in January, 2009, offering classes for all ages. It is equipped with 16 editing suites, a recording studio, a soundstage, a 60-seat screening room, an animation studio, a large Center Studio, and 4 small studios.

The Lab was constructed using environmentally sustainable practices. It features recycled building materials, geothermal heating and cooling, radiant heat, natural daylight monitors, solar panels, and a green roof that provides insulation & storm water absorption. Through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) we have received LEED certification (Leadership in Energy Efficient Design) at the Gold Level and we are the first LEED Gold N.C (new construction) building in Westchester.
