The Maltese islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino, make up the 315 square kilometres of the Maltese Archipelago. The islands are situated halfway between Sicily and North Africa. Set in the sun-drenched Mediterranean Sea surrounded by some of the clearest waters, the islands are steeped in history, tradition and charm; yet they are full of cosmopolitan colour and fun.
Why Film In Malta?
Malta prides itself in offering a vast variety of film locations due to its rich architectural heritage and diverse landscape. The Maltese Archipelago has been used to stand in for many different countries such as Iraq, Kuwait, Egypt, Turkey, Peru and of course Italy, just to mention a few. Spielberg’s ‘Munich’ for example used Malta to double for Rome, Beirut and Athens as well as for Israel, Palestine, Greece, Cyprus and Spain.
