African Movie Channel (AMC) officialises its progress into the development and production of its own movies and TV Series through its newly created production division, AMC Original Productions – AMCOP. The African film industry is facing wider international recognition and it is important that industry players continue to contribute even more to its expansion, and for wider mainstream audience.
African Movie Channel is already popular for its superb Nollywood movies and captivating content catalogue. With its three channels – African Movie Channel (AMC), AMC Series and Nolly Africa, AMC has enhanced its presence internationally to keep entertaining its viewers with interesting movies, series, talk shows and much more. AMCOP will take the film industry to a whole new level, showing its commitment and passion for excellent African storytelling by home-grown talent.
By the end of 2018, AMC which already collaborates with prominent Nigerian producers will leverage on this with the launch of AMCOP to add not less than 20 exclusively-owned movies added to its library.
The Head of Channels, Yvonne Dublin-Green, declared, “The creation of AMCOP has been a long time coming and is a natural progression for AMC. As a global player, it has always been important that the content we create is of superior quality, and we have made sure we partnered with filmmakers, actors and actresses who are of the highest calibre to join us on this journey. We have always been interested is fostering and showcasing African talent, and AMCOP is the perfect opportunity to bring that about.”
On the other hand, a founding director of AMC, Lola Onigbogi, expressed, “It has been an incredible experience working with these filmmakers, and AMC looks forward to working with even more talented filmmakers, to provide the kind of content blend that our modern African audiences demand.”
AMCOP movies will begin to beam every Friday from 7th December exclusively on African Movie Channel.
