Over the past 3 years I have been volunteering at this festival and I have watched it grow to attract tourists, volunteers, potential film makers and film-enthusiasts. it is slowly establishing itself as a European Film Festival in a European country that has no film festivals to speak of.

This year, it's funding was slashed to nothing making the event unfeasible. While the Valletta cultural agency launched Cinema City

The foundation is a voluntary, non-profit and non-governmental organisation. It finances the festival through a combination of ticket sales, public grants and private sponsorship.

Since 2015, Film Grain Foundation organised five editions of the Valletta Film Festival, making Malta part of the international film festival circuit. The festival attracted around 50,000 patrons and showcased over 500 feature and short films at various outdoor and indoor venues around Malta and Gozo.

It represented Malta and supported local filmmakers at other top-tier festivals and markets such as Berlinale, Clermont Ferrand International Short Film Festival and Sunny Side of the Doc in France.

Every year, the festival invited filmmakers to the Maltese islands, with many attendees presenting their work to local audiences and film industry professionals through master classes, Q&As and workshops.

Some of these included cinema giants such as directors Roland Joffe, Peter Greenaway, Alan Parker, Agnieszka Holland, Liliana Cavani and Bela Tarr, as well as up and coming young directors like the D’Innocenzo brothers and Jayro Bustamante.

We hope you can help us reach our goal and that the Film Festival will be able to take place next year stronger than before! We understand that it is a tough time at the moment, however if you could at least spread this message around or sign the petition we would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

We appreciate any amount you can donate and aim to be able to give the organisation a donation that they can move forward with
