THE Nigerian Film Corporation (NFC) has called for resolution of dispute between the  Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), and the Federation of Registered Nollywood Guilds and Association (FREGAN).

This is contained in a statement by Mr Brian Etuk, NFC’s Director of Public Affairs on Wednesday in Abuja.

Etuk said the attention of NFC was drawn to media publications of the purported crack in Nigeria’s film industry.

He said such crack resulted to the pulling out of AGN from FREGAN.

According to him, there is a need for the various film industry guilds and associations to come together and work for the common interest of the sector.

“It is only a unified and cohesive body that can be effective enough to positively benefit from government policies that are favourable to the growth of Nigeria’s film industry.

“The Federal Government administration has shown its determination to reposition the creative sector, as a fulcrum for national development by creating the Federal Ministry of Arts, Culture & Creative Economy.

“It has established a national committee to streamline tax issues in Nigeria, which the film industry will be a beneficiary as well,” he said.

He said that the ongoing crack in the industry or any other form of distraction would not augur well for Nollywood.

“All parties to the dispute are kindly requested to allow  resolution under the auspices of NFC brokered meeting at the Department of Entertainment & Creative Services of the Federal Ministry of Arts, Culture & Creative Economy”.(NAN)
