Chineze Anyaene On Why Nollywood Will Not Make The 2015 Oscars

   

CA

In February, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) approved the Nigerian Oscars Selection Committee ahead of the 2015 Oscars.

This selection committee is made up of 12 Nollywood stakeholder whose responsibility is to select and submit one film for consideration for the Foreign Language Film Award.

The Chairman of the committee, Chineze Anyaene, has however disclosed that there is no submission from Nollywood, according to a report by Victor Akande for The Nation.

 

Excerpt below;

 “Most of the entries received were “either in English, while some of those that were not in English were not properly subtitled and quite a number of them were lacking in some technical details.”

But according to Anyaene, what matters to the committee is the selection and submission of a work that best represents the country and not just to be counted among the countries with entries at the Oscars.

She said: “We don’t have to submit a film if we don’t have one worthy of an entry. That explains why we are not among the 83 countries. But it is not a bad situation. We are only a few months old as a committee of the academy and it means that we need to prepare against next year and subsequently. We are working on hosting a series of workshops in collaboration with the regulatory agencies and relevant guilds and associations as well as stakeholders so we can enlighten them on the expectation as far as this category is concerned. But I am optimistic we will have an entry next year.”
