Melita also has a keen interest in film festivals, international films, and emerging filmmakers. For the past five years, she has worked as an English-language presenter and translator at 20minmax, a short film festival in Ingolstadt, Germany. She has also presented Q&A sessions at the Valletta Film Festival, Malta, and the Crossing the Screen International Film Festival, Eastbourne, UK, in the past. She continues to work closely with Crossing the Screen International Film Festival, which recently rebranded as Eastbourne International Film Festival, where she assists with PR strategy.
The guiding thread throughout all of Melita’s work is her natural curiosity for the world we live in, other cultures, and other modes of communication. Her writing has allowed her to talk to many fascinating people, and she will be forever grateful for the conversations they have had.
