JOINT STATEMENT FROM MPA & MEIA ABOUT VISION 2030 LAUNCHED TODAY BY MINISTER FOR TOURISM

WE MUST ACT NOW

Echoing the objectives of the campaign CelebrAZZJONI, MEIA and MPA welcome the call made today by Minister Clayton Bartolo that “we must act now” to create an effective and sustainable film and television sector.

MEIA and MPA welcome the overall intention of Vision 2030. The four pillars of Vision 2030 highlighted by Minister Bartolo – Infrastructure, Film Culture, Education and Finances reflect the proposals that both organisation have been advocating for years.

Both organisations recognise the commitment given by Film Commissioner Johann Grech to embrace dialogue with all stakeholders.

Both organisations are of the opinion that the Ministers responsible for Film and TV should immediately set up a permanent working group that should, amongst others, include industry representatives to discuss the state of the industry and produce a holistic strategy for the sectors that will truly give priority to the Maltese film and tv industry. 

MEIA and MPA also note that although some of the points raised in October 2021 are still being considered, it remains unclear what the future of the co-production fund will be and whether Screen Malta will increase later in the year.

Both organisations look forward to learn more about the plans the government has for Malta Film Studios and Fort Ricasoli, the newly announced Malta Film Institute and the alternative ways of financing mentioned by Minister Bartolo.

Members of MEIA and MPA are currently attending the various panel discussions at Malta Film Week. Both organisations hope that this week will be the start of a long-lasting dialogue with all stakeholders that will lead to a change in the way of how the film sector is organised, supported and promoted.
