concerts and events.

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 usually 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. 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.
