Following an acclaimed run on the US film festival circuit last September, Maltese full-length feature film The Boat will have a red-carpet premiere today.

The film will then be on general release from Wednesday, exclusively at the Eden Cinemas.

The Boat – written, produced and directed by Winston Azzopardi and co-produced by and starring his son Joe Azzopardi – successfully delivers 90 minutes of nail-biting tension.

It skilfully blends together all the ingredients necessary for a first-rate psychological thriller as a fisherman sets out on an idyllic day at sea only to end up battling an unseen antagonist against the backdrop of the Mediterranean.

Today’s premiere event is open to the public and will feature a Q&A session with the Azzopardis, moderated by Jo Caruana, immediately afterwards. Tickets are at €10. For more information, visit
