Former Deputy Minister for Tourism, Abla Dzifa Gomashie has indicated that lack of adequate training in the film industry in Ghana has led to its inability to progress and thrust forward.
It is very unfortunate she says, that a country like Ghana which was once ahead in filmmaking is now behind in that regard.
Gomashie revealed that people from different continents come to Ghana to learn about filmmaking in order to enhance their skills in filmmaking at the film school National Film and Television Institute, (NAFTI) to be educated and to learn some skills on how to be good filmmakers in the movie industry but she described such people as being more knowledgeable and skilled than filmmakers here in Ghana which is disheartening.
“People are going ahead of us, people back in the day were in Ghana at NAFTI to learn about filmmaking have now taken over the filmmaking” she noted
Speaking at the maiden edition of the MultiChoice launch Talent Factory Initiative she applauded MultiChoice Africa for their tremendous work; introducing this new initiative in the filmmaking industry.
