MONROVIA, Jan. 9 (LINA) – The President-elect of the Liberia Movie Union (LIMU), Gregory Artus Frank, has assured members of the union and other Liberians that his leadership will seek to improve the quality of local movies to a level that meets the taste and admiration of international viewers.

« The system we intend to institute will ensure the proper screening of Liberian movies in order to be on par with international movies before placing them on the market, » Frank said.

Said framework, as anticipated by Frank, will seek to cultivate maximum quality of Liberian movies so that they can be appreciated by consumers, adding that this will serve as a catalyst to upgrade the entire sector.

The LIMU president made the comments on Wednesday in an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) at the Ministry of Information on Capitol Hill.

Frank said, when introduced, the planned system will work for filmmakers in Liberia, adding, « This system will be beneficial to us in Liberia; we need this system so that actors will benefit from their handwork. »

Frank indicated that this will also give the union the legitimate power to screen and approve all movies before they are released on the market.

« The publication of non-quality items on the Liberian market and on YouTube is hampering the growth and development of the industry, » Frank noted.

According to him, his administration will also implement a policy that will protect intellectual property in Liberia.

He assured members of LIMU that reconciliation, capacity-building and transparency will be hallmarks under his leadership to ensure the betterment of the union, stressing that the provision of office space for the organization will be the short-term priority.

Frank called on LIMU members to join hands in moving the union forward, encouraging them to as well minimize and control their expectations.

« Let us slow down, the work will have to be done collectively, we have to exercise patience and employ collective efforts, » he told LIMU members.

Frank refuted rumors that he was banned from producing movies in Nigeria, claiming that he can go to Nigeria at any time to produce movies contrary to claims in some quarters of the Liberian society.

He added that with his status in the movie industry, he prefers to play a supervisory role in the industry in order to give the young generation the chance to showcase their talents.

Frank was on December 29, 2018 elected as President of LIMU along with other corps of officers to steer the affairs of the union.
