Valletta Film Festival 2018 – Host a Filmmaker

Winner of 2017 Best Short Film Award – Ahmad Saleh holding the VFF Triton Award

Up to 24 short films will be competing for the Best Short Film award at the fourth edition of Valletta Film Festival taking place from Friday 8th to Sunday 17th June 2018.

As it is impossible for the festival to host all short film directors, producers or actors involved, the festival is inviting Malta residents to show off their famous hospitality and host a short filmmaker!

Preferred hosting locations include 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.

For each night of accommodation provided hosts will receive 2 tickets to attend a screening of their choice at the 4th VFF. But the real reward comes in the stories you’ll get to tell from hosting a potential Valletta Film Festival winner!
