Malta Film Fund

Film FundThe objective of the Malta Film Fund is to nurture and back the development and production of Maltese films and scripts (i.e. Feature Films, Short Films (production only), Creative Documentaries, and High Quality International TV Series), which in turn contributes towards building an Indigenous Film Industry. The fund offers two funding strands, one for development (Writers’ Grant and Development Grant) and one for production (Short Film Production for New Talent, Short Film Production, Production), with a total budget allocation of €250,000. We welcome applications for film and script projects in all genres (including animation) from both new and established film-makers that aim to promote Maltese storytelling, Maltese stories and Maltese cinema and by doing so improve the structure and ultimately create a self-sustained Maltese film industry. An independent evaluation panel of highly esteemed professionals including foreign experts from the film industry are brought together to assess and review applications and to administer awards. As administrators of the Malta Film Fund and other schemes, The Malta Film Commission are working towards an alignment and coordination of various film support measures that will help support Maltese film making talent.
