Mimi Andani, the CEO of the Golden Movie Awards, has revealed that the popular award scheme for Ghana’s movie industry will not be held again due to financial challenges. The awards did not take place last year due to a lack of funding, and Andani stated that she and her team have been investing their own money into the awards for seven years.

According to Andani, the budget for the Golden Movie Awards ranges from 600,000 to 800,000 cedis every year, and despite their efforts to attract sponsors, the event has never received any significant support from corporate Ghana.

Despite the lack of sponsorship, Andani revealed that industry stakeholders have been supportive of the initiative, stating that she has “one million percent support from the industry.”

The Golden Movie Awards were founded by Andani, a former Big Brother Africa contestant, to reward excellence in Ghana’s movie industry. The awards have been praised for promoting the growth and development of the industry.

However, the cancellation of the awards due to lack of funding raises concerns about the future of Ghana’s movie industry and the role of award schemes in promoting the industry’s growth.

For the most part, the Golden Movie Awards have been a major platform for Ghanaian filmmakers, actors, and other industry players to showcase their work and gain recognition for their contributions. The awards have also been a way to attract international attention to the industry and to promote collaborations with other countries.

The cancellation of the Golden Movie Awards underscores the need for more support from both government and the private sector to promote the growth of Ghana’s movie industry. It also highlights the need for sustainable funding models for award schemes and other initiatives aimed at promoting the industry’s development.
