An awards which aims at honouring young talented film makers and personalities in the movie landscape is set to be launched in Accra.
Dubbed “Emerging Movie Awards Ghana” (EMAG), it is slated for Saturday February 1at 11:00am in Gh Media school, Achimota.
It is brought to you in partnership with spotonnews.net, Urstruly Praiz, Travex Media Concept, Shine, Xbrit World Tours among others.
Speaking exclusively to spotonnews.net, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of EMAG, Mr Raymond Kombat explained that the maiden awards would recognise the achievements, experience and innovation in filmmaking.
He observed that most awards in the country did not recognise the effort of production managers and assistants and intended to award the efforts of the production crew and technicians who make movie shooting a success.
Mr Kombat said the award categories would also appreciate the efforts of actors, actresses, directors, script writers and other influential personalities.
Awarding these young achievers, he said would help propel them to strive for excellence in filmmaking.
Mr Kombat indicated that the country had reached an era that much of its effort should be geared towards raising entrepreneurs who had creative ideas to break boundaries in helping the developmental agenda of the country.
Thus, he mentioned would boost morale of youth to venture into the industry to make money for themselves, adding that “It will create an opportunity for filmmakers to put spotlight on their film.”
Mr Kombat urged all young filmmakers to attend the launch as he would talk about the means they could grab their nomination forms to partake in the awards scheme.
