Il-Festa, produced by Media Link Productions Company Ltd, is a 13-episode culture programme focusing on the characteristics of the Maltese festa: the passion, the traditions and the artistry that some festas involve. The programme explores these features while promoting them through a number of interviews and footage from the different locations around Malta and Gozo. It looks behind the scenes to reveal the different aspects and the level of collaboration involved in putting up the spectacle that is the Maltese festa.
“Thanks to Arts Council Malta’s KulturaTV fund, the programme Il-Festa could be done in a professional manner and could cover various aspects of this important tradition. Thanks to this financial assistance, we could invest more hours of filming and editing, to achieve the high-quality product that can be viewed on our screens.”
