Why Nollywood doesn’t produce sci-fi movies – Movie director, Kingsley Omoefe

Nollywood’s new narrative, according to one the industry’s directors and producers, Mr. Kingsley Omoefe, is refocusing the industry from its initial blunders to one with professionally savvy hands and equipment that are in tune with today’s global standards.

“Today, we have better trained filmmakers, better equipment; corporate and financial institutions are now more interested and the reception is amazing. The outcome is that Nollywood is making better films and the world has noticed us,” he submitted recently upon completion of his new movie, Wheel of Fate.

However, Omoefe noted that the industry is still challenged in one area of cinematic experience, which is science fiction (Sci-Fi) genre of filmmaking. He attributed this to “three major factors. First is finance. We don’t have the funds to do a good Sci-Fi. Two, the expertise and technology are not readily available and the audience. Nigeria cinema viewing audience does not appreciate such genre. It’s not part of our culture and lifestyle. And as such, anyone funding such film will be taking a bigger risk.”
