This is the list of films chosen for the first edition of the ‘Islanders‘ side bar.

Islanders is a non-competitive section of the Valletta Film Festival open to productions that are mainly set on islands or produced by filmmakers that are citizens or residents of an island. There are 49 islands in the world that are sovereign states and just as many that are dependent on other states or regions. There are also thousands of unpopulated islands, scattered like little dots, on the map of this planet that we call home. Islanders  promises to become a cinematic archipelago of our planet, set in one of the smallest capitals of Europe – Valletta.

The screening programme of this section will be announced on 1st June 2015.
