Abia State Government Offers 10 Million Naira Grant To Film Makers
Film makers must hear this.
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has pledged N10 million as grant for any film shot in Abia state.
Ikpeazu made the pledge when he received the Managing Director, Nigerian Film Corporation (NFC), Chidia Maduekwe, in his office in Umuahia.
The governor said during the meeting that the production "should be 100 per cent shot in Abia" for any film maker to access the loan.
Since Abia state played a key role in the marketing and sales of Nollywood films, Ikpeazu also promised that his administration will participate in the capacity building of the industry.
“We have a policy to open up our market to genuine investors, private and public agencies amongst others through promoting `Make in Abia` instead of 'Made in Abia', proliferating more industries in the state,’’ Ikpeazu said.
