Spazju Kreattiv Cinema continued to welcome visitors to experience its highly curated arthouse catalogue reaching the four corners of the world. As with every creative strand within our programme, the cinema faced temporary closures in order to stay in line with government regulations. That said, thanks to our loyal cinema audience, our cinema was still able to deliver a variety of films by local and international filmmakers.

Even during a period of closure, the cinema persisted in spreading the appreciation of film. Particularly, this came about through engaging around 40 adolescents from around Malta to take on the experience of being jury members in the European Young Audience Awards. At a time where many initiatives for children and young people have been put on the back burner, this Europe-wide event gave young Maltese film buffs an opportunity to spread their wings and interact with stakeholders in the film industry for a oncein-a lifetime opportunity. In the local sphere, the monthly editions of Malta Indie Shorts, a series previewing local short films alongside discussions, were particularly welcomed by the public with almost every screening being sold out.

Other than promoting local film, the cinema also aided in encouraging cultural exchanges through foreign films with a variety of representative bodies from countries from all corners of the world. Namely this included events such as Estonian Film Days, New Zealand Film Days, French Film Days and Some of Kieślowski’s Colours, collaborations with foreign embassies and cultural centres. These collaborations continued to successfully integrate a wider variety of films within our programme, as well as make our programme more accessible to foreign individuals based in Malta.
