RMD set to get Chieftaincy title at Igbo film festival

Delta State Commissioner for Arts and Culture and Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo popularly called RMD will be the toast of many enthusiasts of Igbo language films come August 27, as the organisers of the 4th Nollywood Igbo Film Festival(NIFA 2014) conclude plans to confer on him the title of “Dike Oha na Nollywood” during the three-day festival.

RMD2The founder of the festival, Nze Harris Chuma disclosed this development to HVP, stating that RMD deserves the title, having paid his dues as one of the celebrated actors in Nollywood.

According to him, the festival, which is billed to hold in Asaba, Delta State capital from August 27, through 30, is designed to “help film makers reach the broadest possible audience, enable the international film community and general public to experience the power of cinema and promote Asaba city in Delta State as a major filmmaking centre.”

Chuma, however, expressed disappointment that despite the massive awareness being created ahead of the festival, film makers from Igbo extraction are not measuring up to expactations.

“It is terribly sad to note that we have received only two Igbo Language movies billed for screening at the much anticipated worldclass event,”chairman of the organising committee, Nze Harris Chuma lamented.
