Today (June 28) the British Film Commission and Malta Film Commission signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the goal of strengthening the bond between the nation's film industries.

The BFC and Malta Film Commission seek to encourage greater cultural, commercial and creative exchange between the UK and Malta, and to foster opportunities to support inward investment film and HETV production in both countries.

Recent examples of productions filmed across both countries include Ridley Scott’s Napoleon series for Apple TV, Jurassic World: Dominion and Game of Thrones.

Speaking to KFTV's sister site Screen International, British Film Commissioned Adrian Wootton cited the communication channels between the two nations that producers in both Malta and the UK will be able to take advantage of. 

He also cited skill sharing as a big part of the MoU. "We're looking at skills exchanges, and advice on things like studio structure as well, things we've already done" that Malta want to emulate. 

Wootton also emphasised the UK's commitment to remaining part of the European film industry landscape. 

Today’s MOU follows similar partnership agreements already in place between the British Film Commission and Spain, Italy, Norway and Austria.
