The aim of the KulturaTV Fund is to incentivise the development of cultural and creative content on private broadcasting stations in order to enhance the quality of television programming in Malta on arts and culture.
Through this funding scheme, Arts Council Malta aims to support the creation of innovative and culturally significant storytelling relevant to contemporary media audiences with a specific focus on the creative sector in the Maltese islands.
The scheme targets eligible productions on private television stations that require investment to develop works that often lack access to private funding. The scheme provides an incentive to independent audio-visual companies to produce quality-driven television programmes through international co-productions with a potential for international distribution.
The scheme aims to support ambitious audio-visual creations and to encourage the production of original drama, innovative creative documentaries and culture programmes that include coverage of live music and theatre performances, in-depth coverage of the culture and arts scene and behind-the-scenes interviews. Due consideration will be given to proposals focusing on relevant developments in the national cultural landscape, such as the Public Cultural Organisations, national festivals and Arts Council Malta partners.
The scheme also aims to support the translation of original Maltese literature and scripts to any other language, including subtitling/surtitling, transcription and captioning – for film, creative documentaries, plays, TV drama, animation, performance scripts, librettos and video art or to be presented at a festival, by Maltese/Malta-based creatives and operators in the field, as applicable.
Private stations licensed by the Malta Broadcasting Authorit; Audio-visual companies that are registered in Malta under the Malta Financial Services Authority Act, Chapter 330 of the Laws of Malta and/or as a Partnership and/or Cooperative.
