Malta has already been dubbed ‘the Hollywood of the Mediterranean’.
But now the country’s new film commissioner has set out an ambitious agenda to attract even more new productions to the island.
Johann Grech pledged to actively promote Malta as a filming location in emerging markets such as China and India.
He will lead the Malta Film Commission, which supports the Maltese movie-making industry and helps to attract foreign productions to film here.
Malta’s history as a destination for film production goes back 92 years, during which the islands have played host to some of the most high-profile productions to shoot outside of Hollywood.
Since 2013, more than 50 movies have been filmed in Malta resulting in €200 million in foreign direct investment being injected into the Maltese economy.
