Early-bird ap­pli­ca­tions for this year’s MIF’17 will close soon, with a 15 per cent dis­count avail­able to those ap­ply­ing before Wed­nes­day, 11 Oc­to­ber. “This lively fes­ti­val gives ap­pli­cants the chance to form an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of artis­tic stan­dards, to per­form before a dif­fer­ent type of au­di­ence, to be as- sessed, en­cour­aged and in­spired by pro­fes­sional in­ter­na­tional ad­ju­di­ca­tors,” says fes­ti­val man­ager, Cathy Lawlor.

Tak­ing the shape of com­pe­ti­tions held be­tween Wed­nes­day, 13 and Sun­day, 17 De­cem­ber, MIF’17 is open to chil­dren aged four and older – and adults. The fes­ti­val, which is an of­fi­cial mem­ber of the Bri­tish and In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Fes­ti­vals, is back for its sec­ond year and will once again in­clude a myr­iad of cat­e­gories in each of the four de­part­ments: from solo bal­let to group tap in dance and “act­ing a poem solo” to mu­si­cal the­atre scenes in drama, among oth­ers.

The MIF’17 will take place at Spazju Kreat­tiv within St James Cava­lier, Val­letta and is en­dorsed by the Val­letta 2018 Foun­da­tion. The main ap­pli­ca­tions for the fes­ti­val close on Mon­day, 6 Novem­ber. To ap­ply or for a full list of cat­e­gories visit www.the­mal­te­seis­lands­fes­ti­val.com
