The founder of Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), Peace Anyiam-Osigwe has said among industry practitioners, there exists an unspoken divide between makers of ‘Asaba’ movies and their cinema filmmaking counterpart.

In the thread, Osigwe advised that for cinema filmmakers to grow cinema audience, they must leverage on both old and new talents.

“Our Core audience has not been converted to cinema goers. it will take the understanding of the influence of the business model of the “Asaba” “Alaba” “upper Iweka Road ” lpound road Aba” and idumota ,mix theory and practice we might finally get it right”, Osigwe shared.

The filmmaker emphasized on balance between the factions.
