(ZIZ)– Minister of Culture, the Hon. Marcella Liburd said her ministry has been having discussions with film industry officials to bring movie productions to St. Kitts and Nevis.
Minister Liburd told ZIZ that the government is working with producer Rudy Langley to bring the film industry to federation.
She said movie productions here would be a significant boost to the local arts sector.
“And again that is one of the things we had in mind with respect to our artistes and art forms because he was able to convince us that if that is done then that would open up more opportunities for people in the arts because you would need musicians, you would need singers, you would need actors, you would need writers, in order to satisfy some of the films that would be produced right here in St. Kitts and Nevis,” the minister said.
Minister Liburd said this effort falls in line with the government’s plans to establish a Creative Arts Academy to prepare residents to take advantage of such opportunities.
