National Film Authority Supports FiCAG

A few days ago, the National Film Authority (N.F.A) reached out with some food items to the Film Crew Association of Ghana (FiCAG). The gesture was in support of the veteran members of the Film Crew Association of Ghana (FiCAG) who had been, to some extent, neglected by the film industry. The Executive Secretary of the National Film Authority Juliet Yaa Asante Asantewaa, said invited more support from other corporate bodies to contribute their quota by supporting some of these worthy causes. The presentation was made at the office of the National Film Authority in Accra, Ghana.

The agenda to establish and strengthen a pipeline working relationship between the National Film Authority (N.F.A) and the various film guilds/associations and issue accreditation is still actively ongoing. Therefore, the Executive Secretary of the N.F.A Juliet Yaa Asantewaa Asante, praised the Film Crew Association of Ghana for paying attention to the needs of its members. “The N.F.A commends the commitment of the Film Crew Association of Ghana (FiCAG) to the course and dedication to the welfare of its member community”, she said.

The NFA made a token donation to support FiCAG’s agenda to aid veteran film crew. According to the President of FiCAG, Mr Samuel Gyandoh, “crew members have been unfairly marginalized and have received very little support in the ecosystem of filmmaking in Ghana…and that requires attention”.

The NFA Boss, Juliet Yaa Asantewaa Asante congratulated FiCAG for their hard work and dedication to the industry and took the opportunity to encourage various institutions, corporate bodies and individuals, to also reach out and support a good course.

The NFA is very committed to its strategic plan to position Ghana as a film hub and an attractive shooting destination on the continent. The need for a strong guild and association community in developing the structures of the industry, is one of the key focus areas of the N.F.A this year. Therefore, relevant policies and activities are being put together to boost the capacity and prepare local film practitioners for great opportunities ahead.
