My Gozo & EXPO Milan

CVC Media`s recent two minute video production entitled My Gozo is presently being screened in the Malta pavilion at the Milano Expo 2015. It includes a collage of shots which portray the many facets of the island of Gozo, which notwithstanding its small geographical dimensions, offers contrast and variety in its landscape and way of living.

Promoting the Island’s Identity

CVC Media is presently producing a series of high end TV publicity clips that will be promoting the island`s identity. The initiative comes from the Gozo Tourism Association which applied and received EU funding to promote the island. This publicity campaign, being screened on prime time on all leading Maltese TV networks, targets the internal tourism sector. It will be followed by an identical campaign that promotes Gozo on the international market.

And we at CVC Media, the leader in promoting the island`s sights and sounds, are proud to state: Gozo…any season…every reason!

Guatemala Documentary

CVC media has just returned from an exhaustive filming assignment in Guatemala, one of the most beautiful countries in Central America. The assignment was assisted logistically by Inguat – the Guatemala tourism authority. Several short features that portray this country`s nature, history and way of living will feature between March and June 2015 in CVC`s award winning programme Malta u lil hinn minnha on TVM. Programme Producers, Alvin and George Scicluna together with camera assitant Christopher Pisani also visited several Maltese lay and religious missionraies serving in Guatemala, notably Fr Joe Camilleri and Fr Anton Grech, who have created several long term projects in their parishes. Fr Anton Grech was also responsible for coordinating the visit and accompanied the team throughout the stay. Another member of the filming troupe was Professor Carmel Agius who has visited Guatemala several times to help set up and run two fishfarms in the regions where Fr Anton works. Special thanks go to gyuide Selmy Licardi and driver Estuardo de Paz for making this third visit another positive one.


Yet another prestigious recognition for CVC Media!

Alvin Scicluna, founder and managing director of CVC Media has recently been awarded the Gozo Tourism Association`s 2014 Gozo Tourism Entrepreneurship Award in recognition to the outstanding accomplishments in promoting the various facets of Gozo`s identity in CVC`s weekly award winning series Ghawdex Illum on national television. The award was presented by Gozo minister Dr Anton Refalo during a special awards evening held at the Grand Hotel Ghajnsielem also attended by HE marie Louise Coleiro – president of Malta, and Dr Edward Zammit Lewis, minister for tourism. The Gozo Tourism Association believes that the non stop promotion initiative of Gozo taken by Alvin Scicluna had, and still has a significant impact on the toursim sector on Gozo.

Agreement with PBS Ltd – the national broadcaster

As from the autumn schedule, Gozo is expected to feature more prominently on TVM following an agreement between PBS Ltd and the Ministry for Gozo which has seen the installation of a fixed IP link as well as the purchase of a digital mobile TV link.

Apart from the regular TV and radio programmes and features produced by CVC Media for the national broadcaster, our studio facilities will be utilised in other Malta studio based live programmes as the facilities and newly installed equipment make it possible for guests from Gozo to participate live whenever the need arises.

CVC and Bold Content

During the first three weeks of August 2014, CVC media was chosen by Bold Content, a London-based production company, to assist in the production of  two short form documentaries filmed in Gozo highlighting the Alter Aqua project on behalf of The Coca Cola Foundation. CVC media assisted in identifying the ideal contributors, conducted pre interviews, and looked after logistical arrangements, equipment, locations, local acting, and provided the services of a production manager. We look forward to share with you the end result.

Madre Margerita De Brincat Special Ceremony

On the 4th of July, our outside broadcast facilities were commissioned by PBS Malta to provide live coverage of the special ceremonies held in Kercem to commemorate Madre Margerita De Brincat, founder of the Franciscan Sisters of the Heart of Jesus who was recently decreed venerable by His Holiness Pope Francis. The two hour long live broadcast in High Definition included a concelebrated mass led by H.E. Mgr Mario Grech bishop of Gozo and H.E. Mgr Charles Scicluna, Malta`s auxiliary bishop and attended by a huge congregation led by H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, president of Malta and Dr Anton Refalo LL.D, Gozo`s minister. A big thank you from CVC Broadcast to PBS’s technical staff present in Kercem and in the main studios in Malta, as well as the parish of Kercem, led by parish priest Can. Brian Mejlak.

Teddie Borg

CVC has lost a great friend and broadcaster…Teddie Borg, the sports journalist who excelled in the coverage of yachting and sea based sports. For several years, our media house was Teddie`s second home. Here, Teddie and James Scicluna edited countless editions of Starboard – all screened on TVM. On several occasions, CVC media crews accompanied him on overseas assignments and provided the filming logistics so that Teddie could produce special programmes in other countries.  The twenty or so youth Zmeraldi team surely remember the unforgettable blissful days spent in Cyprus with Teddie and Roselle when he was our guide and master of ceremonies for a tour during which fun was the order of the day! Our sincere condolences go to Roselle and the family. Until we meet again…
