The Malta Film Commission (MFC), set up in 2000, is the first point of contact for national and international filmmakers in Malta. As a government entity, the Commission aims to be the facilitator for film productions in Malta by providing support in location scouting and in searching for service partners within the industry. Moreover, MFC lobbies for film and promotes Malta as a film and production destination on a global scale, with the aim of attaining long-term benefits for the local film industry.
Malta offers various possibilities in such a small area, including certain valuable historical buildings, strong connections, and, most significantly, just short distances between each location. Foreign producers can hire film crews, actors and extras casting, production facilities, offices, construction, transportation, props and costumes, accommodation, catering, and other services from Malta’s production companies. Additionally, one of the major advantages is, of course, a highly qualified and skilled workforce that is linguistically adaptable and offers cost-effective services in comparison to other European countries. Malta is considered to be a place with fascinating backdrops, a talented workforce, reasonable rental rates for premises and technology, and relatively good privacy, all of which attract foreign actors and artists.
