The campaign ‘Sustainable Film Industry’ marks the success of the Maltese and the Gozitan film crew.
“Today, we are celebrating the hard work and commitment of our film crew working in Malta’s film industry. It is our crew who kept the industry working from one generation to the other.” stated the Film Commissioner Johann Grech.
The Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection, Clayton Bartolo, stressed the importance of a sustainable film industry. The Minister mentioned that the film industry contributes significantly to the local economy, and therefore it is the Government’s vision to further strengthen this industry. This is being achieved by heavily investing in the infrastructure at the Malta Film Studios and by creating job opportunities for the many, not the few.
“Our vision is to turn the film industry from a seasonal one into a permanent career opportunity for the current generations and those to come. We need to make sure that our children don’t just watch movies on television but take active participation in this growing and resilient industry,” stressed Minister Clayton Bartolo.
The ‘Sustainable Film Industry’ campaign, with its key message ‘be part of the success’, aims to raise awareness of the local film industry, with the objective to encourage more people to join and be part of the industry, so to create a sustainable film industry for the benfit of all.
“Our ambition is to create careers. And we shall not stop dreaming to create a world-class film industry in Malta.” Film Commissioner Johann Grech concluded.
