The Malta Producers Association launch one week film & TV training event ‘Future Visions’

Taking place from the 23rd – 27th April, the professional development programme will aid audiovisual professionals in advanced story development, as well as legal, distribution, co-production and international funding for film & TV.

The Malta Producers Association, representing private sector film and TV producers as well as experienced production crew in Malta, is launching Future Visions – a one week training event taking place from the 23rd to 27th April. The professional development programme is free for members and is also open to non-members for a fee. The MPA is keen to welcome audiovisual producers and filmmakers looking to hone their skills and further develop their projects.

Future Visions will include training by John Yorke – former head of Drama at the BBC and Channel4 – whose book Into the Woods is one of the UK’s bestselling books on narrative structure. Yorke’s keynote speech and three-part workshop will be followed by legal sessions courtesy of Dr Annalisa Putorti. Dr Putorti, from Rulli Putortì & Partners Law Firm, will give an overview on coproduction law in Europe and copyright legislation.

The event will also include guidance on Creative Europe funding provided by Martina Petrovic, the Creative Europe MEDIA desk representative for Croatia, and Daniela Said, the Maltese MEDIA desk representative. The programme will close on Saturday 27th April with a screening of Muayad Alayan’s A House in Jerusalem, accompanied by an introduction by the film’s sales agent Heretic, and a Q&A with the writer-director.

Future Visions is the first initiative being launched by the new board of the MPA: interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker, Charlie Cauchi; the producer of Luzzu, Rebecca Anastasi; the director and producer of Simshar, Rebecca Cremona; cinematographer, Ben Borg Cardona; as well as filmmaker, Ryan Gatt.

The MPA was established in 2019 to contribute towards the development, promotion and improvement of the audiovisual industry and its resources in Malta. The association aims to safeguard and represent the interests and rights of Malta’s audiovisual producers and service providers, ensuring professionals in the sector enjoy a competitive and advantageous environment.

Future Visions is being supported by the Arts Council Malta through its Programme Support Scheme. For more information, registration, and application to Future Visions, please visit: up to date with more announcements on Future Visions by subscribing to the Facebook page:
