Film Authorities Action Group Petitions President To Re-Open Cinemas

Published

on

The National Film Authority Action Group ie the NFAAG has petitioned President Akufo-Addo  through the Tourism Ministry to open cinemas across the country. 

According to him, this is to enable the film industry kick start its process of recovery after it was hit by Covid-19 pandemic. In their petition NFAAG stated that, although they have taken note of reasons why the President is hesitant, they have also done analysis on how to safely re-open these cinemas. 

“We have carefully evaluated the potential spread of the virus at our cinemas and the attach risk assessment shows the residual rating as safe for re-opening. We propose an online booking system which will allow us to track and trace our customers easily. Further to our own proposal, we have taken notice of the measures outlined by the cinema operators and submitted to the Ghana Tourism Board for consideration. 

We also believe the above sectors modes of operation are similar if not same or worse than the cinemas”. The NFAAG petition comes 7 months after cinemas were closed when the coronavirus pandemic first hit Ghana. After some months, although restrictions and ares including public transport and public gatherings were raised, beaches and enclosed nightclubs remain closed . The NFAAG has called on the President to release restrictions on the operations of cinemas after he delivered his 17th address to the nation in August. 

However, his failure to address the issue during his 18th address to the nation in October, raised more concerns from the group. Meanwhile, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says, there are high risk level associated with the social activities of cinemas, enclosed nightclubs and beaches. According to him, there are high chances of spreading the novel virus through these activities. But the filmmakers insist that, a cinema has a higher potential of following Covid-19 safety protocols than many of the operating sectors of the economy. 

“We gathered that while enclosed space events such as churches, conferences, award shows and your likes can admit a minimum of 500 and maximum of 2000 people or more per hall. The cinema has maximum capacity to of 300, and with the 300 seats in capacity, cinema operators are willing to do only 50 percent per show so as to enforce the social distancing directive”.
