Malta film and TV industry to receive funding support

The government of Malta has included the film and TV industry in a raft of funding support measures to mitigate the socio-economic impact of COVID-19, including funding for crew members who were working on productions when the virus struck.

Initially, the screen sector had been omitted from support measures, but thanks to lobbying efforts, the film and TV sector will now be eligible for government aid, which provides a monthly payment of €800 to employees.

All crew members who were working on a production until the COVID-19 outbreak or were contracted to work on a production, are now entitled to the Malta Enterprise and JobsPlus COVID-19 financial assistance.

Malta was due to host a number of international productions when the coronavirus struck. The most high-profile of these was Jurassic World 3, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, which was due to start shooting in Malta this month.

The Malta Film Commission has established a COVID19 Support Unit to assist film crew members benefiting from the government’s economic incentives.
