Over €1.5M in funds awarded for 19 local productions
03 August 2023

Nineteen local productions have been awarded over €1.54 million in funds for productions as part of the Creative Malta scheme administered by the Malta Film Commission.

Launched in December 2022, the Creative Malta scheme was designed to better meet the industry’s needs.

The process has also been made simpler and more producer-friendly with a more straightforward application process that focuses on creativity.

Additionally, the focus is for filmmakers to think globally,  supporting more local producers and strengthening local productions further. This is a commitment to elevate Maltese film to a broader stage.

Creative Malta is just one of a number of schemes and initiatives by Government which support local productions and local producers.

The Malta Film Commission has also extended the cash rebate initiative, which can rise up to 50%, to local productions to support their projects further.
