Screen Producers Australia is excited to welcome the Malta Film Commission to SPA CONNECT as part of our International Partnership Market (IPM). The delegation will be constituted by Malta Film Commissioner, Johann Grech, and Senior Executive to the Film Commissioner, Daniel Camilleri.
Malta’s islands have played host to an array of high-profile productions, from Gladiator, to Game of Thrones, toTroy (pictured) and most recently Murder on the Orient Express. Since 2013, over 50 productions have been filmed in Malta, resulting in more than €200 million in foreign direct investment being injected into Malta’s economy.
The Malta Film Commission not only strengthens the foreign film servicing sector, but also supports the local filmmaking community through various financing incentives, including the Malta Film Fund, Co-Production Fund and Malta Cash Rebate – which in 2019 will rise from 27% to 40% for foreign qualifying companies.
Bookings for SPA CONNECT have a staggered release from 12.00PM (AEST) on Friday, 9 November, and you must already be registered as a conference delegate to be eligible to take part in a Roundtable or Ready, Steady, Pitch!.
