Filmmaker Frank Rajah Arase Talks About How to Grow a Prolific Cinema Culture

Nigerian Filmmaker Frank Rajah Arase has added his voice to the ongoing discussion on how to revive active Cinema life in Ghana. The celebrated Film Director said in an interview with Shine Publications that, the first step was to increasing the number of Cinemas with strategic locations. He said without this, it would be impossible to make Cinema going a lifestyle. He stated this on Saturday in Accra when asked about the how encouraging the film business in Ghana looked like from a foreigner’s perspective.

Filmmaker Frank Rajah Arase, in explaining why Ghana needed more cinemas, said that more cinemas would erase proximity challenges for the public. “You need to have more cinemas to be able to encourage a good cinema culture. People will consider moving from their far away homes to coming to a cinema just to watch a movie. So, if there are cinemas closer to them, it would be easier, less stressful, and also economical for them to go see a movie”, he explained.

The Nigerian Filmmaker has been a significant player in Ghana’s film industry especially during the days where actors Majid Michel and Jackie Appiah ruled the film industry. He is also the Director of popular Ghanaian Actress Jackie Appiah’s new movie ‘Red Carpet’ scheduled to be premiered on 1st May 2022 at the Silverbird Cinemas in Accra.
