Lagos - Nollywood actress, Stephanie Okereke, has said that the Nigeria film sector needs more capacity building to produce high class films to rank among the best in the world.
Okereke told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday that there was still room for improvement.
"There is still more to be done in the industry, things kept on evolving and we need to fall in place too.
"Nollywood has been doing a lot of fantastic job of telling the Nigerian story but we need to step it up.
"We are selling the Nigerian culture and languages either way you look at it; we have not done enough selling of our culture for people to get hungry for it,” she said.
Okereke said that the industry was focusing on capacity building because "it is vital for the industry. We need to train and retrain our people to become professionals in what they do.’’
She said that Nollywood in conjunction with the New York Film Academy had been training people on film making.
She asserted that the training was what was needed to keep the industry going and to tell the African story in a better way.
She noted that the industry had won a lot of international awards, which means the good works that the entertainment industry had done over the years needed to be celebrated.
"Nigeria has a high level of creativity and we need to always celebrate the good works we have done in this country.’’
