Regional #AmfestExpoIbadan2018 - The report - Day 2:

Sequel to the successful ‘Lagos 2018’ that held in the summer and matters discussed at the Business Summit, it became necessary that a Regional program be developed to cater to issues discussed,
like authenticity and originality of our Arts and Culture. Professionals that practise at the regional level are closer to traditional inspiration, so the program is to support in bringing them mainstream.
The International #AMFESTEXPOLAGOS2018’ was well attended by the core professionals of these industries. Delegates from
United State of America, England, Ghana, Malawi, Benin participated in the conference.

Panel Discussions -Topic -Church real estate, Church population, a possible film economy.
Discussions considered the size of the Christian and Church attending Community in Nigeria as a market of well over 50 million people
Keynote Speech by Frank Madojemu(MD @nustreamscentre )
The Church auditoriums and ultra modern audio visual facilities was considered as a formidable alternative to the deficiencies in the Cinema facilities in Nigeria. The Church network in Nigeria is so well organised, from the metropolitan locations to the rural areas.
With the central system and structure used by the Church to disseminate information, this same system can be used to produce anddistribute morality tailored film content that can be profitable for film producers willing to leverage the size of this market for business.
The growing youth population in the Christian Community are very familiar with digital content consumption. This market will be an ideal demography to target for Religious and spiritual film content.
....
The Church becoming investors in this industry can support members to develop into a film production community and can have far reaching advantages as most Churches in Nigeria have well structured international branches.
The Church will benefit from delivering modern format film materials that can impact the morality and spirituality of this young population as this format will be well embraced.
This can also become a low-cost film market, as a token can be charged and few days in the week, over a good number of months can be dedicated to viewing throughout all branches and sister churches.
The church can recoup investments, deliver spiritual content that can cause real change.

If the Church network can be leveraged and the Church as a body decides to me more proactive in speaking a language mode that members understand, then a formidable film industry can grow out of this need.
The market and distribution channels already exist, the Church can partly or fully fund the process.
