Project Paradiso is a prestige project from Young Film Academy (YFA), offering a select group of YFA’s most promising students (aged 16-20) the chance to create a stunning short film in a cinematic location in Sicily, Italy.
YFA launched a successful crowd-funding campaign, in which each participant was responsible for raising a proportion of the budget.
Guided by YFA staff, talented writing students crafted a compelling script for the actors and filmmakers to bring to life.
In February 2023, the filmmaking and acting students joined YFA staff in Sicily to shoot ‘Lemons’, against the majestic backdrop of Mount Etna.
After shooting wrapped, the film was edited and post-produced to the highest industry standards.
