NFA should help in promoting Ghanaian movies on Amazon, Netflix platforms – Martha Ankomah appeals

Ghanaian actress Martha Ankomah has drawn attention to the challenges faced by filmmakers in Ghana in getting their content onto major streaming platforms like Amazon and Netflix.

Speaking at the Film Investment Breakfast Meeting organized by the National Film Authority (NFA), Ankomah stressed the importance of support and collaboration within the country’s film industry to improve accessibility and reach.

The event, attended by various dignitaries, celebrities, and industry experts, aimed to address obstacles and explore opportunities within Ghana’s vibrant film landscape. Speakers such as Juliet Asante, Danny Damah, Shirley Frimpong Manso, and Ivan Quashigah highlighted the significance of strategic partnerships and investment in driving the sector’s growth.

Ankomah’s successful career and contributions to Ghanaian cinema, including roles in movies like ‘Heart Of Men’, ‘Deadly Heart’, and ‘The Dirty Fantasy’, give weight to her advocacy for broader exposure of Ghanaian films on global platforms.

The NFA’s involvement in facilitating this process could have a significant impact on promoting Ghana’s rich cultural narratives in the global film market. The push for Ghanaian films to be featured on platforms like Amazon and Netflix could open up new opportunities for Ghanaian filmmakers to showcase their work to a wider audience.

It is evident that collaboration and support within the industry, along with strategic partnerships and investments, are crucial in elevating Ghana’s film industry and showcasing its unique stories on a global scale.
