Malta Opens Film Funding Call for Local Producers


    VALLETTA. The Maltese Film Commission and the island’s Ministry of Tourism have opened a call for applications for the Screen Malta film fund scheme, offering development, production and distribution grants to local producers. Screen Malta has a yearly budget of 600,000 EUR. This is the second year the scheme has been run in the current format, having replaced the Malta Film Fund in mid-2020.

    The granting streams offer scriptwriting support up to a maximum of 30,000 EUR, development support up to a maximum of 50,000 EUR, short film production support up to a maximum of 30,000 EUR, with feature films being offered a maximum of 200,000 EUR.

    Distribution grants include festival fees support of up to a maximum of 500 EUR (short films) and 1,000 EUR (feature films), marketing and promotion support up to a maximum of 20,000 EUR and festival attendance support up to a maximum of 5,000 EUR.
