VALLETTA: Malta will raise film incentives to a maximum of 40% and the government will invest almost 2 m EUR in a soundstage of 5000m² at the Ricasoli film studios.

The Minister of Tourism Konrad Mizzi said that three private operators have also shown interest in setting up their own soundstages, according to lovingmalta.com.

Mizzi also announced that Netflix is interested in filming in Malta. Negotiations are underway with a deal to be settled soon, and a soundstage would be a big plus.

“Producers have told us that while we have great outdoor facilities, the production of TV series requires soundstages, which is something we’re working on,” Konrad Mizzi said on television quoted by lovingmalta.com.
