One other plus for the movie industry in 2017 was the involvement of the banks. IN spite of the successes recorded in 2017, some top Nollywood practitioners still believe that the year presented a mixed grill for the industry. For founder and Chief Executive Officer of Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, the celebration of mediocrity characterised movie produced in Nollywood in 2017. He frowned at some practitioners’ obsession with the comedy genre of movies and the ludicrous extent they took it. The director of award-winning Aramotu and Heroes and Zeros expects that the international distribution/exhibition space for Nollywood films will expand in 2018 since Nollywood is fast redefining itself in the context of global mainstream entertainment.
