Former ONE Productions member part of team given extraordinary film funding

Aaron Briffa worked for One Productions for 20yrs until the change of Govt in 2013 when he set up his own company AB Creative.

He has now partnered up with Jean Pierre Magro, who formerly worked with Jason Micallef, and Pedja Miletic of http://monolithlimited.com.

I’m sure their Labour and government backgrounds had nothing to do with them being granted 500K – “More money than even Malta Film Finance under the CoPro Fund and the Malta Film Fund put together can give” as Pierre Ellul of Falkun Films put it in a Facebook status yesterday.

Ellul pointed out that whilst the Malta Film Commission and its commissioner Johann Grech have to constantly battle to get more funds allocated to the Malta Film Fund, the Arts Council entered into “business” with Jean Pierre Magro, “handing over a sweet gift of EUR 500K”.
