Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson, has been soliciting signatures from stakeholders in the movie industry to be able to petition the government over difficulties being faced by businessmen in the local movie industry.

In a letter to stakeholders, the award-winning actress said: “We have heard some of our own on countless occasions slamming the industry for its decline with the favourite words ‘Ghana movie industry is dead’. It is quiet disturbing to hear these words being uttered when asked about our industry. A once well-structured industry with lots of entertainment to give cannot, and will not be abandoned for it to be ruined.”

“We aim to present a petition to the President and the Minister of Tourism, Creative arts and Culture citing the difficulties facing us in the industry. We want to bring unity to all industry players, we aim to uplift the Ghana movie industry again for the better by making sure there is allocation of special funds for producers, right payment structures for all involved in the industry especially the thespians, royalties and its right disbursement, local content being the major viewers’ choice on our networks and allocation of cinema halls in five major regions across the country.”

She believes that when this is done, “jobs will be created; we will showcase the country and its rich culture all over the country and to the world to promote tourism the right way and bring in investors to our nation”.

“If we unite we can make our voices heard,” she added.
