According to Mr. Socrate Safo, the chairman of the film classification board, all content providers must work towards having their content classified by July 1, 2020.
Safo made this known in an interview on the ‘Showbiz live’ Sunday with Caleb Nii Boye on Live 91.9 FM.
He stated that the negative impact of foreign content on Ghana’s culture has been the motivation to fully implement the law as the chairman of the Film Classification Committee.
The Film Classification Committee is mandated by the law to provide the legal background for the production, regulation, nurturing and development of the Ghanaian movie industry, and for the distribution, exhibition and marketing of films and for related matters.
The committee has a key mandate under the National Film Authority (N.F.A) and for Mr Safo, the task of meeting the needs of all key stakeholders in the industry including filmmakers, broadcasters, exhibitors, industry stakeholders and the general public will attract criticisms when expectations are not fully met.
