Nigerian film production company, Guguru Studios, and three other African production studios have been announced as the joint winners of a €80,000 grant to produce a musical drama film. 

The other winning companies are Driving Park Limited and AdomiBridge Studios from Ghana, and Togo Films from Togo.  These companies will jointly produce a musical drama film about illegal mining, commonly known as galamsey in Ghana.

The yet-to-be-produced film, A Dream To Die For, is written by David Masterwille. The film follows a group of young musicians caught up in the galamsey economy. Galamsey, derived from “gather them and sell”, is a local Ghanaian parlance that means illegal small-scale gold mining in Ghana.

Speaking about the cross-cultural and industry benefits of this co-production initiative, Ms Juliet Yaa Asantewa Asante, the Executive Secretary of Ghana’s National Film Authority, noted that co-productions between African filmmakers are a vitally important element in achieving the growth of the African film industry. She made this remark at the beginning of the co-production agreement between the four film production companies.
