The Malta Film Industry

Featured in Game of Thrones, The Da Vinci Code and many others.

Malta’s fantastic and logistical geographical location, unique scenery with historical backdrops and a guaranteed supply of extras, render it a perfect location for a multitude of film productions. The proactive attitude of the local authorities to make available the local scenario for the film industry together with a serious investment in the existing film facilities, have attracted film producers of international repute to Malta. Recently, blockbusters with Oscar nominations and award winning films such as the Da Vinci Code, Gladiator, Alexander and Munich have been shot in Malta for the reasons outlined above. Malta is also becoming a favourite location for the filming of commercials for high end and luxury products.
Film producers have been attracted to Malta because of the plethora of incentives provided by the local authorities for the film industry, including favourable tax incentives, as outlined hereunder.
