Without Film Treaties Nigeria is Lagging Behind South Africa in the Global Film Industry

Without film treaties, Nigeria is lagging behind South Africa in the global film industry.

South Africa has so far signed co-production treaties with the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, Italy, United Kingdom, New Zealand, France, Ireland and Australia.
Establishing the legal framework for international co-productions is more important than repeating publicity stunts on CNN, because showcasing Nollywood and Kannywood on CNN or Al Jazeera is nothing new since they have been done before.
Don't waste the money on such unnecessary hype.
Let us stop misplacing our priorities in the sustainable development of the Nigerian entertainment industry.

Who are the 20 notable filmmakers the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture wants to showcase on CNN?
Based on which criteria?
Lancelot Imasuen has been on both CNN and Al  Jazeera.
Jeta Amata has been on CNN.
Femi Odugbemi, Mahmood Ali-Balogun and other notable Nigerian filmmakers have been on Al Jazeera.
You can see the video on http://www.indiewire.com/2014/05/is-nollywood-a-genre-or-the-new-name-for-the-entire-nigerian-film-industry-235876/.

If you are showcasing 20 notable Nigerian filmmakers, don't forget the best Nigerian female directors noted on http://totnaija.blogspot.com.ng/2017/07/nollywood-and-best-nigerian-female.html.
Then also highlight the best tourist locations for film productions in Nigeria as shown on http://totnaija.blogspot.com.ng/2014/01/the-best-film-locations-in-nigeria.html.

Let us establish the priorities in the development of the Nigerian film industry.
