Malta Names New Film Commissioner

By FNE Staff

Peter Busuttil has been appointed to the position of Film Commisioner at the Malta Film Commission (www.mfc.com). The appointment was made by the Minister of Finance, the Economy and Investment.

He replaces Luisa Bonella, who had held the post for five years and resigned earlier this year.

Busuttil, who has been active in the Film Commission for the past three years, has an extensive background in film production and theatre management. Since 1987, he has produced, directed and hosted an array of TV productions. His experience is expected to be an asset in continuing the growth in the Malta film industry sector over the past two years, as the country has hosted an increasing number of foreign film productions.
