Malta Arts Council Gives Grants to Film Festivals


    VALLETTA: Malta Arts Council will allot more than 1 m EUR over the next three years to eleven artistic organisations and festivals including Kinemastic, Malta Short Film Festival and Valletta Film Festival.

    Times of Malta quotes the Culture Minister Owen Bonnici saying that the agreement would help artists to plan into the future rather than depend on annual financial assistance.

    The council will invest approximately 10 m EUR in creative projects over the next five years through different partnership agreements, strategic funding and development plans.
