The Malta Film Commission (MFC), established 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 of film productions in Malta, providing support in the search for locations and service partners within the industry. In addition, the MFC lobbies for film and promotes Malta as a film and production destination on a global scale, with the aim of achieving long-term benefits for the local film industry.
Malta offers several possibilities in such a small area, such as certain valuable historical buildings, strong connections and, most importantly, only short distances between each location. Foreign producers can hire film crews, casting of actors and extras, production facilities, offices, construction, transport, props and costumes, accommodation, catering and other services from production companies in Malta. In addition, one of the main advantages is, of course, a highly qualified and skilled workforce that is linguistically adaptable and offers cost-effective services compared to other European countries. Malta is considered to be a place with fascinating scenery, a talented workforce, reasonable rental rates for premises and technology, and relatively good privacy, all of which attract foreign actors and artists.
Moreover, Malta Film Studios is one of the largest production facilities in the world. Having produced over 200 feature films, TV movies, documentaries and commercials, the facility has an excellent track record as a reliable and efficient production studio.
