In line with its cinema development agenda, the National Film Authority (NFA) of Ghana has signed a strategic partnership deal with VOX Cinemas, one of the largest film distributors in the region, to distribute and show Ghanaian films in cinemas in the Middle East.
In partnership with the Meta Film Festival, the National Film Authority and VOX Cinemas will premiere the movies on the 27th, 28th and 29th of October 2022 at the VOX Cinemas, Nakheel Mall in Dubai. The grand VIP showing will take place at the same venue on the 3rd of November 2022 to open the cinema run of the three films in the UAE. The initial screenings will happen in Dubai and Saudi Arabia, with the onboarding of other countries in the Middle East as the opportunity grows.
The three films, ‘Single Not Searching’, ‘Terminus’, and ‘Borga’ are the first set of Ghanaian movies to be premiered in VOX Cinemas. It is projected that a successful run with the three films will open the door for other Ghanaian films across the region, as well as open the door for other African countries, since this is the first time that such a deal is happening for the continent and between the two regions.
