The Nigerian Film Corporation (NFC) has started discussions with the French Agency for Development (Agence Francaise de Developpement), AFD, in order to train and build filmmakers in Nigeria.
Head of Public and Intergovernmental Relations, Mr. Brian Etuk, revealed this to newsmen on Tuesday, September 10 in Jos.
Etuk said that the venture was aimed at professional, amateur, and upcoming filmmakers in the country.
The funding intervention will be funneled into training and capacity building for the professional, amateur, and upcoming filmmakers across the country.
The National Film Institute in Jos will serve as the training fulcrum, while NFC will equally support the expected funding with the provision of physical infrastructure.
The infrastructure which will require upgrades through the funding is expected to add to the film production value chain and ecosystem. Brian Etuk – pmnewsnigeria.com
