A fish-eye view of our archipelago. The beauty of Malta and Gozo’s seas is undeniable. However, what we see is the tip of the iceberg. CineXjenza will be screening the Malta Airport Foundations documentaries Comino: A Secret Paradise and Filfla – An incredible Malta Diving Experience, in collaboration with student organisation ESA at 7pm, 10th December at Spazju Kreattiv.

Stunning footage of the flora and fauna surrounding the Maltese archipelago has been captured in a collaboration between the Malta Airport Foundation and Professor Alan Deidun and Pedja Miletic. In the documentaries on the seas of Comino and Filfla, with a combined 77,000 views online, the beauty of the archipelago is displayed. Ecologist Professor Alan Deidun (Department of Geosciences, University of Malta) will be on hand to chat about biodiversity, conservation and the impact of human activity on these beautiful ecosystems. His research covers Malta’s coastal life and marine alien species, and the reasons behind jellyfish outbreaks. Snacks and refreshments will be served during the discussion.

CineXjenza is supported by the STEAM project. It is run by the Malta Chamber of Scientists, in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv and S-Cubed.
