by Stéphane Goël), another highlight will be the Talent Talks, daily discussions with filmmakers in competition, which will take place from 15-22 June in the informal setting of the Cinema Bar at City Lights. In addition, two very special guests will be in attendance: acclaimed auteur Liliana Cavani, the doyenne of Italian cinema who helmed 1974’s The Night Porter besides countless other titles, will give a master class on the distinctive features of her craft of directing film on 18 June, while acclaimed Hungarian helmer Béla Tarr (Family Nest, The Prefab People, Almanac of Fall, Satantango, The Turin Horse [+lire aussi :

) will preside as the so-called “Master of Cinema” at Valletta this year and will also lead a master class on his work as an auteur.

Finally, the Valletta Film Forum, open to all active industry professionals and film aficionados from Malta and other small nations, will feature panels made up of various key players in the industry. The forum will home in on the realities that filmmakers from small nations face and will examine Malta’s place within the international film industry, as well as discussing topics concerning domestic and collaborative screen production. The very first edition of Books to Films is also on the agenda for 20 June and is an event that stems from the idea of connecting filmmakers and book publishers. Authors, publishers and literary agents were invited to submit books that have the potential to be adapted for the screen, and nine selected books will participate in a moderated pitching session in the hope of piquing the interest of the filmmakers in attendance.
