Kinemastik is a cultural NGO based in Malta, responsible for a year-round programme of film screenings, concerts, exhibitions, workshops, talks and short film production.
The Kinemastik International Short Film Festival takes place in July and is held over three days at The Garden of Rest, a deconsecrated cemetery overlooking the Marsamxett Harbour.
Kinemastik collaborates with international ﬁlmmakers and festivals to bring independent ﬁlm to a local audience. The festival is now in its 15th year.
Kinemastik links local ﬁlmmakers to the world of cinema, providing them with a platform for their work, through local screenings as well as through worldwide distribution of locally produced works.
