Host a filmmaker at the 5th Valletta Film Festival








Valletta Film Festival started a “Host a Filmmaker” programme in the 4th edition and we were absolutely and positively overwhelmed with the many response we got from Maltese residents.

As it is impossible for the festival to host all short film directors, producers or actors of films selected in our Short Film Programme, the festival is once again inviting the local community to show off their famous hospitality and open their doors to a short filmmaker

Up to 24 short films will be competing for the Best Short Film award at the fifth edition of Valletta Film Festival taking place from Friday 14th to Sunday 23th June 2019.

We love the entire Maltese archipelago, however we will give preference to hosts living in  Valletta, Floriana, Sliema, Gzira and the Three Cities (or any other location which has a good public transport connection to Valletta).

Hosts will be required to provide a warm welcome and a clean, private room for their guests. Everything else is up to you.

The festival will show its appreciation for your hospitality by giving out 2 tickets for any screenings of your choice for each night you accommodate our guests. And who knows, perhaps it will be you hosting the next Best Short Film winner and get to shine on the red carpet at our Awards Ceremony!
