Nollywood Film Business | (Video) The Future of Nollywood is Not in Cinema Distribution says Professor Moradewun Adejnmobi at @Nollywoodweek Paris Festival 2013

What is the future of Nollywood? Watch as a UC Davis Professor on African Studies and stakeholders including actors share their views, videos courtesy Balancing Africa.

Do you agree with the Professor’s views? She says the future of Nollywood is not in cinema in the traditional sense. She believes will be Cable, Satellite, and Pay-per view television. Listen to her and see if you agree with her views. I am not so sure about her views on the internet’s role in Nollywood. I would have to disagree with her.

As to her Cinema point, I will note like Tunde Kelani discusses in the last clip, that I trip out everytime I receive a newsletter with the latest theatre releases and see practically ALL American movies. It’s crazy. We talk distribution but don’t believe any of our films are really that worthy to be distributed online.

Also check out what actors have to say about the future of Nollywood.

Industry, watch and share your experiences and thoughts.
