Kathleen Kennedy

Kathleen Kennedy Producer, Munich [2005]

We used a lot of locally based people. We had great crews who were both experienced and enthusiastic 

Otto Heller

Otto Heller Cinematographer Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness? [1969]

Malta has the finest photographing light of practically anywhere in the world…it’s so sharp and haze free it almost gives the picture a third-dimensional effect.

Kevin Reynolds

Kevin Reynolds Director, The Count of Monte Cristo [2002]

I was pretty sceptical that we were going to find anything even approaching the look we need, until we saw Malta

Jonas Armstrong

Jonas Armstrong Actor, The Whale [2013]

You just can’t find places like this in the UK and it’s difficult to act plausibly in front to a green screen…..Malta delivers all these amazing locations that only add to the atmosphere of the film

Jeffrey Junter

Jeffrey Junter Actor, Single Handed [1953]

The Mediterranean is as blue as an angel’s eyes, warm, and so clear that you can watch a veiled tropical fish weaving round a thousand feet below the surface

Guy Ritchie

Guy Ritchie Director, Swept Away [2001]

The Maltese are trustworthy; Malta is inexpensive and the labour is good. Not only that, the locals are just plain fun. It’s been a case of home away from home here

Rick Carter

Rick Carter Production Designer, Munich [2005]

Malta has this kind of Mediterranean hodgepodge of culture where we could find areas that look like southern European locations in one spot and areas that look like Israel or Beirut in another

Fernando Bovaira

Fernando Bovaira Producer, Agora [2009]

Malta provided the best possible location for a film like Agora. The period backdrops, the climate, the quality English speaking crews and the wonderful possibilities of the casting and extras together with Malta being part of the EU, have made our lives easier

Ridley Scott

Ridley Scott Director, White Squall [1996] and Gladiator[2000]

What we got out of Malta was terrific. It’s very much a studio situation and it’s the best water facility I know of.. studio situation and it’s the best water facility I know of..situation and it’s the best water facility I know of..situation and it’s the best water facility I know of..situation and it’s the best water facility I know of..

Chris Brigham

Chris Brigham Director, The Count of Monte Cristo [2002]

When we first read the script there were a host of location requirements that looked impossible to fill – a Marseille Port in 1790’s; an isolated prison atop majestic cliffs; caves with crystal water; streets that could be readily transformed back 200 years. It all seemed impossible – that is under our director, Kevin Reynolds had spent less than one day in Malta. Kevin had planned to visit half dozen different countries in search of these quite difficult and quite specific locations. Happily for all of us, Malta was his first and last stop

Kevin Reynolds

Kevin Reynolds Director, The Count of Monte Cristo [2002]

Whereas most of the rest of Europe has been taken over by modern architecture, Malta still retains a very unique look with all the old forts that are made out of huge stone blocks. As a consequence it is very unique, and I can’t think of another place where one could have found anything that would have looked like a Mediterranean port circa 1815.

Arthur Max

Arthur Max Production Designer, Gladiator [2000]

On Fort Ricasoli it offered us the space, and it was enclosed by these ancient-looking stone walls with arches and some building we eventually did interiors in. We created a kind of Roman backlot  On Fort Ricasoli it offered us the space, and it was enclosed by these ancient-looking stone walls with arches and some building we eventually did interiors in.

Mie Andreasen

Mie Andreasen Producer, The Holiday [2013]

Malta is actually a film set. You can shoot wherever you go, wherever you look

Renny Harlin

The smartest thing I ever did was to go to Malta.

Charlton Heston

You could shoot a film of any period here

Andrea Iervolino

Andrea Lervolino

We shot in Malta because there were some locations that allow us to have the environments already ready without having to rebuild and Malta have a fantastic Film Commission
