Ms Abla Dzifa Gomashie, the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Art, has celebrated three Ghanaian films that have made strides on the global scene.
These are Children of the Mountain by Priscilla Anane, SilveRain by Juliet Asante and Nakom by Isaac Adakudugu.
The citation reads:” Values For Life Appreciates your impressive strives to put Ghana’s Creative Arts on the global market.”
It also said: “You have walked beyond a mile stone and raised a hill from a valley, At last, your Praise song we shall keep, forever, on our Praise tongue.”
Ms Gomashie was speaking at the Creative Arts Player’s dinner and awards night organised by Values For Life (VFL), an NGO in Accra.
The event was to recognise and celebrate films and film makers, who are promoting the image of the country on the international stage.
She said the country needs to celebrate and support the young film makers, who are receiving recognition on the continent and around the world.
“It is only in celebrating those who dare to project our sector in such positive lights that the world will remember us for our role in shaping the story of African Film,” she added.
Ms Gomashie, said the organisation is dedicated to promoting the creative arts, performing arts and culture among the youth.
She said the organisation would continue the tradition of celebrating industry players, who have done well, are doing well, and hopefully inspire others to do well in the sector.
