The YFA team are the best film workshop group we have ever asked to the Hay Festival. They are professional and easy going to work with, and brilliantly inspirational with the kids, who feel complete ownership. We've had them back for 5 yrs now and they always sell out."
Telegraph Hay Festival
YFA works with arts festivals in the UK, including the Telegraph Hay Festival and the London Children's Film Festival. We offer four unique and inspirational filmmaking workshops for arts festivals:
Adrenaline-fuelled, live action filmmaking. The stars of tomorrow work in teams to create their story, get into costume, shoot and edit their film in time for a World Premiere!
