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.

Project Paradiso 2024 was supported by Registered UK Charity Prospero World. Project Paradiso is an ambitious collaborative project that aims to unite educational training with a real-world film industry opportunity – offering participants the experience of a lifetime.

Guided by YFA staff, talented writing students crafted a compelling script for the actors and filmmakers to bring to life.

In February 2024, the filmmaking and acting students joined YFA staff in Sicily to shoot the film against the majestic backdrop of Mount Etna.

Now that shooting has wrapped, the film will be edited and post-produced to the highest industry standards.

An exclusive cast and crew screening will be held in London in July 2024

The film will then be submitted to festivals internationally.

We are grateful to all our supporters for making the dream of Project Paradiso a reality!
