2021 was entirely not a dull year for the Ghana Film industry but 2022 looks extremely promising looking at the lineup of local movies that have already made their way onto the big screens of Ghanaian cinemas. From filling up cinemas to packing up incredible action sequences, there seems to be a new dawn for the industry. Well, inasmuch as a lot is going on in the structure and foundation of the Ghana Film Industry, it will not sway us away from the incredible work filmmakers and actors are putting out to ensure we fall not.
We have three movies in the spotlight coming out as the very best movies of January 2022.
