Johann Grech developed and honed his skills in the freelance market and the agency business before occupying the role of Head of Government Marketing within the Office of the Prime Minister between 2013 and 2017. He was appointed Malta Film Commissioner in December 2017.
Even though Malta’s history as a destination for film production goes back almost a centenary, the Malta Film Commission, which Mr Grech heads, was set up in 2000 with the dual aim of supporting the local filmmaking community and also strengthening the film servicing sector. Over the past years, its efforts to support the local film industry resulted in various financing incentives. The implementation of a new strategy led to an unprecedented growth in the local industry, with many productions made in Malta resulting in a strong foreign direct investment being injected into Malta’s economy.
Mr Grech has a BA (Hons) degree in Communication Studies from the East London University and a Master’s in Corporate Communications and Public Affairs from the Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.
Johann Grech’s motto: “We can make it happen”
