The Director of Golden Movie Awards Africa (GMAA), Mimi Abu Andani, has said piracy is collapsing Ghana’s movie industry.

According to the former Big Brother Africa star, modern technology has made the fight against piracy by Africa filmmakers difficult.

She also bemoaned Ghana’s legal regime as doing little to combat “the number one enemy in the movie industry.”

Mrs Andani was speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) during the official media launch of the 2017 GMAA Annual Movie Awards held at Accra on Tuesday.

“Piracy is everywhere, even in advanced countries where security software applications are available to fight. It is something every country is fighting against,” she said.

“Film associations in Ghana have remained committed to directing efforts to reduce piracy in the country but they need the support from the legal system to propel the move,” she added.

GMAA gives the opportunity to African filmmakers from around the world to receive praise, recognition and be awarded for their efforts at telling the African stories to both Africans and the rest of the world during the period under review.
