Launch of MYFF 2

The second edition of the Malta Youth Film Festival was launched yesterday at the Institute for the Creative Arts, MCAST, Mosta. Speaking on behalf of Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, Mr. Jason Zammit explained how the Malta Youth Film Festival fits the bill in terms of opportunities extended to young people as part of the Agency’s Empowerment Programme. Following last year’s success, he said, this programme would be continued since it provided an ideal space for the expression of young people’s creativity.

Ms. Susan Ronald from the Malta Film Commission explained about the golden opportunity such a programme offers aspiring young film makers, and Ms. Joyce Grech from the Malta Film Foundation encouraged all the young people present to take part in this festival since the conditions for participation were expressly tailor made for them. The film ‘Sunday’ by Bruce Micallef Eynaud, winner of last year’s edition was also screened during the launch.

     

Aġenzija Żgħażagħ would like to thank MCAST for hosting this event, in particular Ms. Martina Caruana, Director of the Institute, and Mr. John Bartolo, Director Student Outreach Services.
