Indo-Ghana Film and Cultural Forum was launched in Noida, India on Tuesday  5th December, 2017.

 

Indo-Ghana Film and Cultural Forum

The Indo-Ghana Film and Cultural Forum was launched in Noida, India on 5th December, 2017. The programme was organized by the International Chamber of Media and Entertainment Industry (ICMEI) of India and the Film City, Noida. The High Commissioner of Ghana, H.E. Mike A.N.N. Oquaye was the Guest of Honour for the occasion. The programme was attended by the founder of Film City, Noida, Mr. Sandeep Marwah, Secretary-General of ICMEI, official from the Asian Academy of Film and Television and representatives from the media houses.

Mr. Sandeep Marwah, stated that the purpose of launching the forum was to enhance and improve cooperation between India and Ghana especially in the arts and cultural industry. He commented that the Ghana Film Industry was a leading and one of the biggest in Africa in the 1990s. Unfortunately, it experienced some challenges. He expressed the hope that the Indo-Ghana Film and Cultural Forum would therefore help to revamp the Ghana Film Industry.

On my part, the High Commissioner of Ghana, H.E. Mike A.N.N. Oquaye commended the efforts of the organizers for the laudable collaboration between Ghana Film Industry and India Film Industry, Bollywood, was the largest film industry in the world (in terms of volumes). He noted that the Ghana Film Industry used to be very big in West Africa but it had been overshadowed by Nigeria due to several military interventions and its related curfews which normally disrupted live showbiz programmes and cinema.

In addition, H.E. Mike Oquaye pointed out that the cooperation between our two industries should not lead to an influx of Indian films in the Ghanaian market. Rather, it should be a collaboration whereby Ghana could learn from the Indian experience, share and exchange ideas and ultimately enhancing the Ghana film Industry. He emphasized that the collaboration must lead to a situation where India film would choose Ghana as a film location in order to create numerous jobs for the Ghanaian artisans.

In conclusion, H.E. Mike Oquaye reiterated that this was a laudable first step engagement to advance relations between Ghana and India in terms of film and film education. However, he indicated that the most important step was to arrange a trip for officials of ICMEI to visit Ghana to engage the relevant film federations in Ghana as well as the Secretariat of Arts and Culture under the guidance of the Minister of Tourism. He promised to facilitate this land mark engagement in early next year.

H.E. Mike Oquaye was made a patron of the Indo-Ghana Film and Cultural Forum, whilst Mr. Sandeep Marwah was made the honorary chairperson. The High Commissioner then granted radio and television interviews on Ghana and India relations.
