Lagos to Open One-Stop Shop for Film Making
In line with its efforts to create an enabling environment for filmmaking and boost tourism in the state, the Lagos State Government is set to create a one-stop shop for filmmakers in the state.
The Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs Shuli Adebolu said this was part of efforts to boost the film and entertainment industry. She made this known at a graduation ceremony for the MultiChoice Talent Factory Scholars which held at the Lagos Business School in Ajah, Lagos.
According to Mrs Adebolu, “Lagos State is the second-highest producer of films on the Continent. The State is, therefore, set to open her doors by creating an enabling environment, regulations and solid foundations that would make the sector a flourishing one that could successfully rival the likes of Hollywood and Bollywood entertainment industries.”
She said that Lagos is blessed with beautiful locations for film production and efforts are been considered to ensure the State has a one-stop Centre that would ensure quality and timely production of films that meet domestic and international standard.
She also noted that the present administration was willing to collaborate with the private sector and other stakeholders to make Lagos become a preferred destination for tourists and entertainment hub of the continent.
