A state-of-the-art and Africa’s largest film and studio complex are set to be in Nigeria following the MoU signed by African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) and the Silverbird Group.
The Partnership was signed by Mrs. Helen Brume, Director Project & Asset-Based Finance, Afreximbank and Mr. Ben Murray-Bruce, Founder of Silverbird Group.
The ground-breaking project, the Ben Murray-Bruce Studios and Film Academy (BMB Studios and Film Academy), will transform the 32,725 square meter land area in Eko Atlantic City into two purpose-built sound stages, a Digital Hub with music and broadcast studios, editing bays, screening rooms, Studio backlot, Production Offices and a Film Academy designed to meet the aspirations of today’s and tomorrow’s content creators.
The project seeks to accelerate Africa’s lucrative film and television industries, attract large-scale international productions to Africa and establish a creativity cluster that will draw in companies and talents working in similar and related sectors. The project will also increase local employment, stimulate business growth, and equip African talents with world-class technical skills and experience in film and television production through the establishment of a Film Academy.
The development of the BMB Studios and Film Academy is in line with Afreximbank’s Creative Africa Nexus (CANEX) Initiative, a programme established by the Bank to support Africa’s creative and cultural industry.
Recognising the bankability of Africa’s creative industry, the CANEX programme is designed for African creatives and digital innovators and experts. CANEX also supports fashion, film, musicians and actors who aim to monetise their content across the digital landscape.
The construction of the studios will accelerate the development of talent, and enhance content creation while supporting and encouraging African creatives to use world-class technology to increase their remuneration and thrive in their careers.
The Film Academy will offer domestic and international students the opportunity to achieve world-class, digital-first, future-forward experiential learning in a wide range of film production disciplines such as cinematography, directing, filmmaking, gaming, music, post-production techniques, producing, screenwriting, VFX and animation.
