Malta Film Commission
Malta’s history as a destination for film production goes back 93 years, during which our islands have played host to some of the most high-profile productions to shoot out of Hollywood.
Gladiator (2000), Munich (2005), Assassin’s Creed (2016) and most recently Murder on the Orient Express (2017) have all come to the Maltese Islands for various scenic location shoots.
The Malta Film Commission was set up in 2000 with the dual aim of supporting the local filmmaking community, while at the same time strengthening the film servicing sector. Over the past 19 years, the Film Commission’s efforts to support the local film industry resulted in various financing incentives, including a financing incentive programme in 2005, the successful Malta Film Fund in 2008, and a Co-Production fund in 2014.
Since 2013, the implementation of new strategy has led to an unprecedented growth in the local industry, with over 50 productions filmed in Malta resulting in more than €200 million in foreign direct investment being injected into Malta’s economy.
Better yet, in 2019, Malta announced a new & uncapped 40% cash rebate incentive, cementing it’s position as one of the most professional, sustainable and cost-effective film destinations for producers worldwide.
