Govt lauds arts, film promoting media

THE Government has appreciated the support rendered by MultiChoice Tanzania in enhancing the film sector saying they disseminate meaningful content which are important for the national development.

This was said recently in Dar es Salaam by the Minister for Culture, Arts and Sports, Innocent Bashungwa who officiated the company's content showcase event which enables DStv to meet with their stakeholders.

"Our President Samia Suluhu Hassan is aware of the opportunities available in the Culture, Arts and Sports sectors that is why she is on the forefront encouraging more innovations to be done.

"She always wants the government to be close to you and solve all the challenges encountered day by day hence we are well prepared to bring the required transformations in this sector," Bashungwa said.

He, therefore, urged Tanzanian artists to make full use of time saying today they are young but in the upcoming years, they will be old as such, this is the best moment for them to be productive.

"Concentrate with your work while knowing in advance that the government is with you and when you succeed, be helpful to others because this sector attracts many people to make it run smoothly," he said.

He also used the platform to preach about love among the artists saying it is not healthy to hear conflict stories among them and that time is ticking so fast to entertain such things.

He also pointed out that the One Stop Center established by the current administration is also another success story whereby the Copyright Society of Tanzania(COSOTA), National Arts Council (BASATA) and Tanzania Film Board are packed under one roof.

"The good news is that these three sectors have gone digital as such you can request for various things using the available technology without necessarily traveling to their offices. This will help to save time and simplify life if properly used," he said.

Earlier, MultiChoice Tanzania’s Managing Director, Jacqueline Woiso said they will continue to do researches and be innovative in order to know what their customers want and provide the necessary services to them.

Elaborating on the MultiChoice Talent Factory which nurtures talents of people directly involved in film productions, Woiso said the programme is unfolding well and that quality film makers are being produced.

"Those students who perform well in their studies earn an opportunity to go to Hollywood and Bollywood where they learn actual experience in film production," she said.

According to her, 13 people have benefited from the MultiChoice Talent Factory whereby eight of them are already on the ground putting in practice what they learnt in class and that they have chosen to be self-employed.
