By FNE Staff

    The head of the Malta Film Commission (www.mfc.com.mt) and the Malta High Commissioner met with UK production companies during a three-day promotional tour to London held in late March 2012.

    Malta Film Commissioner Peter Busuttil emphasized the growth in film productions in Malta in recent years, the development of film related services and crews, Malta's water tank studio, and financial incentives including a 22% rebate of eligible spend. Malta has also instituted training programmes to strengthen the skills of film industry workers.

    The Maltese delegation met with the Production Guild, individual producers, and production houses during the British visit.
