Malta Film Commission Responds to Increased Government Support for Film Industry

By

VALLETTA: The Malta Film Commission has welcomed the timely response of the Maltese government to concerns about the film industry being overlooked in the nation’s emergency measures, and has set up a unit to assist filmmakers in need.

Malta Film Commission's statement says: “The Government of Malta has presented an immediate response to mitigate the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic." The Malta Film Commission announced that Malta’s local film industry will also benefit from the Government’s economic initiatives. All crew members who had been working on a production until the COVID-19 outbreak or were contracted to work on a production, are now entitled to the Malta Enterprise and JobsPlus COVID-19 financial assistance.

The Malta Film Commission went on to state: "These latest COVID-19 economic support measures are among other incentives which the Government of Malta is introducing to mitigate the consequences of COVID-19 on business and the economy. Other new economic measures are being introduced to reflect new developments relating to the situation."

The Malta Film Commission has announced that it established a COVID-19 Support Unit to assist film crew members benefiting from the Government’s economic incentives.
