MALTA / The Mediterranean Film Festival returns

Festival du Film Méditerranéen

The Mediterranean Film Festival returns to Malta for its 2nd year from June 22nd to 30th with the theme: Unity through film.

Malta’s Film Commissioner, Johann Grech, explains the Festival’s importance: “In a time of unprecedented instability and division in the world, the Mediterranean Film Festival has a very special role to play in promoting, as our slogan loudly proclaims, unity through film. Today more than ever it is essential to encourage dialogue and understanding between Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.”

The films screened for the public will be in four categories: the International Competition, which has 12 films from across the Mediterranean, including Zeki Demirkubuz’ Hayat (Turkey), Brandt Andersen’s The Strangers’ Case (Jordan) and Daina O. Pusić’s Tuesday (Croatia). The Out of Competition category shows films from the rest of the world, the Mare Nostrum selection is for documentaries about the environment and the Visions of the Future category offers works in virtual reality.
