Making A Movie In Ghana Is Expensive, According To Fella Makafui

Ghanaian producer and actress Fella Makafui has illuminated the financial challenges facing the country’s film industry.

Makafui, who is presently promoting her next project, “Resonance,” revealed that the dearth of external funding sources, like as loans and investments, makes filmmaking in the nation financially difficult.

In an interview with TV3 on May 1, 2024, Makafui said, “Producing a film in Ghana is a bit difficult because you literally have to pay for everything.”

“Everything is from my pocket,” she said, claiming that she was responsible for paying for all costs, including those related to the costumes, food, cast and crew salaries, and equipment.

Makafui’s admission coincides with proposals for more organized funding for the arts, which might aid in developing and expanding regional talent and artistic output.

Fella Makafui emphasized in a previous Hitz FM interview the importance of investor and fan involvement in supporting the work of filmmakers.

Public support, she continued, might provide money and enable future shows.

The actress is promoting Resonance, her upcoming film, which will have its debut on Saturday, May 11 at Silverbird Cinemas in Accra.
