Astute Kumawood movie director, Frank Fiifi Gharbin has called the Film Directors Guild of Ghana a wack association.
He spoke on Zylofon FM’s Showbiz Agenda, where he stated that executive members of FDGG are not qualified to work in the capacity of their positions.
According to Fiifi, FDGG is too quick to accept members into its organization hence, new members are not scrutinized for eligibility as film directors.
“While I was with FDGG, anyone at all is accepted into the organization. It was as if all they wanted was the numbers and not the competence”, Fiifi told Sammy Flex.
Frank who has quit FDGG to join the Creative Authors and Directors Association of Ghana(CADAG), questioned the credibility of the guild as its executives have not made movies in years.
He explained, “When was the last time you saw a movie produced or directed by any FDGG executive. The association is not plausible.”
He further called on business organizations with interest in working with directors for movie, film, music videos and others to patronize CADAG over FDGG since they[CADAG] have proficient members who are making impact in the industry.
“At CADAG, we screen our new members intensively. All members are required to submit at least three movies which received immense patronage from the public. If you have none, you can’t be a registered member”, he stressed.
Frank Fiifi Gharbin, Kofi Asamoah, Ola Michaels and many others are all former members of FDGG who quit to join CADAG.
