The Ghana Film Sector may soon witness a facelift should the new consensus arrived at and resolutions taken by various bodies and associations in Ghana at the recently held two day conference at Royal Lamerta Hotel in Kumasi be effected.

After discussing topical issues facing the sector including the problems of the sector, unification of various associations, building proper structures, institution of investment fund for veteran industry players, the establishment of of a box office system, the various stakeholders arrived at forming a Film Federation of Ghana which might soon come into fusion.
They also arrived at various resolutions to make the sector grow into an industry with the right structures in place. A research will soon be carried out to outline the prospects of the film industry and its contribution to Ghana.
