Crack In The Film Industry As AGN Pulls Out From Federation Of Nollywood Guilds
The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) says it has pulled out of the Federation of Registered Nollywood Guilds and Associations (FRENGAN), citing its focus on the growth, development and welfare of members as reasons.
Emeka Rollas, National President of AGN, stated this in a letter he addressed to the leadership of FREGAN on Monday.
According to him, the decision to exit from the federation was reached after careful consideration of suggestions and opinions expressed by members and stakeholders on the guild’s membership of the body.
“After a careful consideration of suggestions and opinions expressed by our members and stakeholders on AGN’s membership of FREGAN, the National Executive Council has regrettably resolved to withdraw AGN’s membership from the body.
“This is to enable the Executive Council to focus on the growth, development and welfare of members as we presently operate as service contractors, meaning that we fall short of labour protection with no access to social security.
He continued, “However since filmmaking is a collaborative effort, we shall continue to support and promote sound and articulate industrial relationships among all the guilds and associations.
“We shall continue to uphold fair contractual practices and a regulatory environment to improve the livelihoods of our members whilst making the future of our industry more sustainable,” the letter stated.
FRENGAN is the umbrella body of all registered guilds in Nigeria’s film industry, with the Association of Movie Producers (AMP) and Directors Guild of Nigeria (DGN) as some of its members.
Other guilds and associations under the coalition include; the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), the Movie Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPAN), and the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners of Nigeria (TAMPAN), among others.
