Cameroon: the rise of Cameroonian film industry

In an African Minute introduces his readers to the film industry in Cameroon: “The most ambitious project Zigoto has undertaken is to create a Cameroonian film industry out of thin air. Cameroon's neighbor, Nigeria, is famous for producing more films that any other country besides India, but no other Sub-Saharan African country (besides South Africa) has made inroads into the industry. Zoomer's Pictures, Zigoto's company, envisions the Cameroonian film industry as the ‘art house’ of West African film making, focusing on high quality, thought provoking pictures instead of exclusively on commercializing their content.”

    Dear reader, I have been touched by the fact that Cameroonians started the film industry in Africa and slept and Nigeria took over and over took us with Nolly wood and others. we really need to work hard in Cameroon. Now gagets are every where and we can do much. I act short films and live in njinikom. I am also an artist and do lot of church arts. I am a Catholic priest and liturgist by training. That means much and I can give advise in many directions. Bye and God bless you. Happy Easter.
