The National Film Authority (NFA) in collaboration with Afrocinemaplus brings your way this festive season, Ghana Cinema Week, seeks to showcase the amazing works of Ghanaian filmmakers and also contribute to enhancing and boosting the cinema going culture in Ghana.
The week-long programme, which is scheduled to open from Friday, 23 to Thursday, December 29, 2022, is aimed at creating an avenue for business growth, establishing sustainable distribution channels for Ghanaian films and helping restore the interest of Ghanaians in Ghanaian films.
The Ghana Cinema Week is designed to exhibit selected Ghanaian films at selected locations across the country within the scheduled period. More than ten films have been selected to showcase at various locations, projecting to target between 20,000 to 40,000 people (including families, corporate organisations, students, youth, and kids) for the first edition.
Films includes ‘The Agency’, ‘Gold Coast Lounge’, ‘Road to My Father’s Compound’, ‘Born of the Earth’, ‘Asantewaa’, ‘Hankuri’, ‘Kadara’, ‘That Night’, ‘Lucky’, ‘God is African’ and several short films from the Ghana Academy of Film and Television Arts.
The CEO of NFA, Ms. Juliet Yaa Asantewa Asante said, “Ghanaians have always loved Ghanaian films and this is an opportunity to re-energise the beautiful marriage between the two by bringing to their doorsteps Ghanaian films they can take pride in and enjoy with the entire family.
Cinema is important for building and developing the local communities and the National Film Authority is very mindful of this as we pursue the cinema agenda to bring Ghanaians great Ghanaian stories and sell the Ghanaian brand positively to the world.
Let’s all work together to energise the cinema-going culture in Ghana,”
