- Sarangu – a Maltese folktale a graphic novel supporting by Arts Council Malta which will be published in 2022
Its first short animation Filfla won the Kinemastik International Short Film Festival Audience Award in 2019.
The B.Start grant will permit Filfla Studio to continue to be a sustainable venture as an upstart studio in the creative industry.
