Malta*

 

Malta holds a strategic location at the cultural and geographical crossroads of different civilizations at the very heart of the Mediterranean.

For over 89 years the Maltese islands have hosted some of the most renowned film makers in the world. Since 1925, when ‘Sons of the Sea’ was the first feature film to be shot in Malta, the island has welcomed hundreds of different productions which were partly or entirely filmed here. Malta has captured the imagination of some of the world’s top directors portraying Malta as a double for a myriad of locations and spanning from the modern times to ancient civilizations of Greece, Rome and Egypt. From street movies to battle fields and underwater sceneries, Malta acts as a unique backdrop for any type of production attracting film productions from around the world.

From prehistoric structures, ancient landscapes and impenetrable fortresses to high baroques cities and contemporary urban settings, Malta is a truly magnificent destination to filmmakers.

Filming in Malta*

 

The Government of Malta has recently upgraded the cash rebates for filmmakers making the financial guidelines more attractive to the film industry. Productions which satisfy a cultural test can benefit from a rebate up to 25% of eligible expenditure with an additional 2% if the production features Malta culturally. Qualifying productions are required to present a provisional application to the Malta Film Commission, including a detailed projection of the Malta budget for the production. The rebate is given once filming is complete and on receipt of the audit report and upon final review by the Commissioner, the cash rebate is forwarded to the qualifying production no later than five months from the date of receipt of the presented production expenditure in Malta.
