Besides the Short Films Competition, the festival is making room for a number of Special Screenings, including two Maltese-produced projects: the documentary Malta to Motor City by Charlie Cauchi, about the Maltese migrant experience in Michigan, and the omnibus film Tafxnaf, directed by 22 students from Malta and Gozo, and commissioned by the Valletta 2018 – European Capital of Culture Project. Sections entitled Without Borders, Teens Only and Islanders (a very original sidebar, open to productions mainly set on islands or produced by filmmakers who are citizens or residents of an island) round off the programme. 

The present and future of the Maltese film industry will also be covered at the festival through an industry talk on the topic, moderated by Charlie Cauchi. Professionals will also have the chance to get acquainted with the Euro Connection short-film co-production marketplace at the Clermont-Ferrand Film FestivalEurimages, and documentary and animation filmmaking during various panels.

The festival will also celebrate this year’s guest, British filmmaker Peter Greenaway, hosting a master class with him on Sunday 10 June, as well as screenings of a selection of his films, plus the documentary The Greenaway Alphabet, directed by his wife, Dutch multimedia artist Saskia Boddeke.
