The Malta Film Com­mis­sion: In­vest­ing in the lo­cal in­dige­nous in­dus­try

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Through the 2016 scheme of the Malta Film Fund over €230,000 were awarded to seven dif­fer­ent projects by lo­cal film mak­ers. The sup­port varies from writers’ grants, film de­vel­op­ment grants, to short films and fea­ture film pro­duc­tions.

The Film Fund plays an im­por­tant part in the govern­ment’s strat­egy to boost the lo­cal film in­dus­try and cre­ate more op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal tal­ent.

To en­sure ac­count­abil­ity and trans­parency the projects were cho­sen fol­low­ing a com­pet­i­tive call and the eval­u­a­tion process was done by an in­ter­na­tional panel of ex­perts.
