‘BLACK STAR FILMS’ IS STILL THE NAME FOR GHANA’S MOVIE INDUSTRY – Juliet Asante

Despite the directive by the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mohammed Awal to put a hold on the use of ‘Black Star Films’ as the name for Ghana’s film industry, Juliet Yaa Asantewaa Asante, the Executive Secretary of the National Film Authority, thinks otherwise.

Speaking on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z on Saturday, March 4, 2023, Juliet said until a new name is chosen by the people of Ghana, ‘Black Star Films’ remains the name for the film industry in Ghana.

“We do have a name,” she said, adding that “the Ghanaian people voted for a name.”

When the host, Kwame Dadzie drew her attention to the fact that the ministry ordered that they pulled the reins on using the name, she said “inaction perhaps means consent.”

“Let’s say we go for voting and clearly somebody wins, and somebody says they are putting this on hold, so the person who has won, please…Until a new election is done, and until that gap is filled, because nature abhors a vacuum, until that gap is filled, legally, the person that has been voted for [legally] is the person in power,” she said.
