Din is-sena l-Festival Mediterranju tal-Letteratura ta’ Malta jirritorna fil-Forti Sant’Iermu, fejn fl-iljieli tat-22, 23 u 24 t’Awwissu se jlaqqgħakom mal-kittieba mistiedna bil-qari tax-xogħlijiet oriġinali tagħhom, kif ukoll permezz tal-intervisti. Se jkun hemm il-film tal-poeżija minn Malta, imsejjes fuq il-poeżija Natura Morta ta’ Joe Friggieri, kif ukoll films magħmulin lil hinn minn xtutna.

Il-festival hu ferm ikbar, però, minn dak li jseħħ matul dawk it-tlitt ijiem, u jiġbor fi ħdanu sensiela ta’ avvenimenti li jibdew fi ftit ġimgħat. Segwu dan is-sit u l-paġni tagħna fuq Facebook u Instagram għal iktar informazzjoni. #FMLM2019

This year’s Malta Mediterranean Literature Festival will be returning home to Fort St Elmo, Valletta, for the nights of 22, 23 and 24 August. The guest authors will be reading their original work, and you will get to know them better through the Q&As. The Poetry on Film series will be reprised with a short based on Joe Friggieri’s poem Natura Morta, which will also be joined by other films from abroad.

Whilst the culmination will be on those three days, the festival is actually so much than that. A series of events leading up to the festival, will be starting in a few weeks; stay tuned to this website, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date. #MMLF2019
