Film and TV stars Woody Harrelson & Finn Cole have been spotted in Malta, as part of their participation in the upcoming project ‘Last Breath’.

Blockbuster legend Harrelson, known for his parts in films such as ‘Now You See Me’, ‘Zombieland’ and ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ joined young star Finn Cole, most recognised from his role in hit series ‘Peaky Blinders’, enjoyed an evening meal at Mdina’s The Fork and Cork.

The Michelin Plate-holding establishment welcomed the stars and went on to post a solo photo with the two, expressing how much of an honour to host the stars.

Harrelson and Cole are the latest stars to visit Malta as part of the ‘Last Breath’ project, with Canadian actor Simu Liu visiting the islands earlier this month.

Currently in production, ‘Last Breath’ is an upcoming deep-sea thriller based on the 2019 documentary about a commercial diver who was stranded at the bottom of the sea with five minutes of Oxygen for over 35 minutes.

The Malta International Arts Festival, organised by Festivals Malta, has become a staple event within the local and international community, known for its eclectic programme of events that champions local artists while introducing audiences to world-class performances set in unique venues.

This year, the MIAF will uphold its tradition of going beyond the conventional by hosting events at unique heritage sites, particularly within an underground water cistern dating back to the 16th century and on a two-masted vessel set to panoramic views of the Grand Harbour … what more can you ask for?

International highlights include Guilhem Desq’s mesmerising hurdy-gurdy solo extravaganza and percussionist Luís Bittencourt with a spellbinding installation for vibraphone, glass tubes and dripping water.. The Javus Quartet from Salzburg, supported by the Austrian embassy in Malta, will perform a stunning programme of string quartets choreographed by Ido Gidon and Justin Roy Barker as part of the MAD – Music & Dance residency programme which connects international artists with local talent.

Local productions include Dik is-Siġra f’Nofs ta’ Triq – a collaboration with Teatru Malta and two collaborations with Heritage Malta: ARTI – full immersion – a son et lumière installation of Maltese visual arts: and Garments of the Grand Masters which combines an exhibition of historical garments of the Knights of Malta with a live piano recital. The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Michael Laus presents Beethoven’s 6th symphony “Pastorale” and Piano Concerto No. 2 by Dmitri Shostakovich featuring prominent Greek pianist Konstantinos Destounis. Last but not least, the festival will also feature B’Riħ Jew Riefnu a theatrical performance which explores local rites and traditions associated with death.

MIAF isn’t just a festival … it is an “experience” where Malta becomes the stage and the backdrop. We highly suggest you’re part of this experience and get your tickets from www.festivals.mt/miaf. You won’t regret it.
