Malta's very first Film Education conference this 27th June
Jun 12 2023 Share

Malta’s film industry is growing at an unprecedented pace as more and more directors, actors and creators with international acclaim choose our island for their blockbuster projects.

Of course, this has prompted Malta’s Film Commission to continue investing in the sector, with Commissioner Johann Grech announcing €500,000 annual pledge into education initiatives.

But that’s not at all as Malta is set to host the very first conference of its kind on the island focused on Film-Education.

On the 27th of June, the Mediterranean Conference Centre will bring together professionals, educators and policymakers to discuss themes related to film education in both formal and informal settings. 

With keynote speeches delivered by the likes of Kathleen Beckman from FACETS – an American nonprofit organisation with decades of experience in Film Education initiatives in Chicago – it will also feature panels consisting of representatives from various entities.

These include the University of Malta, MCAST, secondary schools, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, NGOs, National Skills Council, film festival organisers and representatives from the industry. 

So if you are in any way interested in the film industry or the fields which educate the youth to seek it as a career, mark down your calendar as this is the place to be.

Anyone seeking more information about Sure Start or the Film Commission’s initiatives in Film Education can send an email to [email protected].

Activists protest lack of action over animal rights

Activists protest lack of action over animal rights

A group of animal rights activists took to the steps of the Auberge de Castille, donning masks of animals as well as various governmental figures like the Prime Minister and the Animal Rights minister, to protest the lack of action over various conditions impacting voiceless animals negatively. 

The action was done, the activists explained in a statement, after an open letter penned to the Prime Minister was ‘ignored’ as little has transpired since then.

‘The reality experienced by shelters, animal carers, and activists sharply contrasts with the false narrative presented by the Minister and the Government. The Labour Government has been in office for nine years, ample time to strategise and implement essential changes to improve animal welfare.’

The group called for various legislations that regulate animal breeding, the regulation and licensing of professionals in the pet care industry, the prevention of dog isolation, etc.

The activists also called for the addressing of operational efficiencies within Animal Welfare, the betterment of conditions of non-companion animals, as well as various other legal reforms. 

‘In conclusion, the above-mentioned points only touch upon a fraction of the issues related to animals. It is equally crucial to address the urgent need for protecting nature, preserving natural habitats, and conserving biodiversity.’

Tables & chairs in Valletta streets spark online debate

Tables & chairs in Valletta streets spark online debate
Jun 12 2023 Share

After a local community Facebook page ‘Belt Valletta’ posted an image of one of the capital city’s streets filled with tabled and chairs, many took to the comments section to reveal that the condemnation of the practice is far from unanimous.

The photo, captioned ‘Festival of tables and chairs’, drew in the critique of many trying to make their way through the capital city and being unable to manoeuvre properly.

Some lamented that pushchair access was being limited, with others slamming authorities for allowing such practices to take place. One even compared it to a new Paceville. 

However, others compared it to foreign cities, arguing that it was pretty common and that people shouldn’t really complain. 

‘Some residents think that just because they used to live there, Valletta is theirs’ said one. ‘When Valletta was dead, we complained, Now that it is full of people and life, we still complain’, said another. 

What is your take on this?
