In the 2019 budget, it was stated that: “The government has acquired 200 acres of land in the Eastern Region to build a Film Village,” which will be a multifaceted hub to make movies and offer other modern related services to film making.
Concerning this proposed Film Village, some influential Kumawood stars presented a petition to Parliament on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, with the request that a Film Village must be built in Kumasi.
According to citinewsroom.com, Nana Ama McBrown who led the team said “We play a very critical role in the movie industry in Ghana. We have employed more Ghanaians as part of our business … for this reason, we are petitioning Parliament to ensure that the Film Village is set up in the Ashanti Region.”
The report further stated that Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, received the petition on behalf of the leader of Parliament and assured the petitioners that their concerns would be forwarded to the Speaker of Parliament.
