Del-York Group, is pleased to announce the groundbreaking of the Lagos Film City on 18 OCT. This ambitious project has evolved from a promising concept to an imminent reality, set to redefine the contours of the African film and entertainment landscape. With Nigeria producing over 2,500 films annually and the entertainment sector poised to contribute 5% to the national GDP by 2025, the establishment of the Lagos Film City emerges as a landmark development.
The Lagos Film City is not merely an infrastructure project; it’s a dream woven with the threads of education, opportunity, and economic prosperity. This monumental endeavor, a public-private partnership (PPP) with the Lagos State Government under the adept leadership of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, will serve as a catalyst for empowering Nigerian youth, providing them with unparalleled educational and professional opportunities in the entertainment realm. By fostering talent and nurturing skills, the project aims to elevate the nation’s creative pulse, ensuring that our stories continue to resonate globally.
Beyond its cultural significance, the Lagos Film City promises to be a significant economic driver for Lagos, Nigeria, and Africa. By creating an ecosystem that integrates production, distribution, and exhibition, we are paving the way for exponential growth in the sector, ushering in a new era of prosperity and prominence for Nigerian cinema.
“The vision for Lagos Film City is not just local; it is global. The essence of global collaboration and cooperation cannot be understated. For the last three years, we have been building relationships with global investors and stakeholders, viewing the Lagos Film City not just as a project, but as a pivot for foreign direct investment. With Nigeria rapidly emerging as one of the fastest-growing global entertainment markets, the time for international investment, collaboration, and expansion to our increasingly vibrant market is now”, notes Mr. Linus Idahosa
