Renowned Ghanaian film producer, director and CEO for TV Africa, Mr. Kwaw Ansah has lauded plans by executives of the Film Producers’ Association of Ghana (FIPAG) to roll out its maiden edition of the Ghana Film Awards.
Mr. Kwaw Ansah who did not hide his excitement at the news applauded FIPAG and asked them go all out for it as he believed it was long overdue. Speaking at the educational workshop organized by FIPAG for its members in Kumasi, Mr. Ansah stated the film industry had been taken for granted allowing people with virtually no idea make money out of organizing their own awards and honouring undeserving people.
“Yes, we know what they have been doing. I live with them in Accra, they organize the awards and give it to their own circle of friends and that is not what we want.”
Recently, the impasse between the Film Producers’ Association of Ghana (FIPAG) and the organizers of the Ghana Movie Awards for what the former believes is an untrusted awards scheme seems to have grown as the former believes the latter does not recognize the good works of all but a selected few based in the national capital, Accra.
FIPAG has as a result asked its members to disassociate itself from the Ghana Movie Awards organized by Fred Nuamah.
According to FIPAG, the Ghana Film Awards will encompass all sectors of the movie industry as they believed that would help build a better industry.
The maiden edition of the awards is scheduled for 2015.
