Nigeria and Spain set to tackle Gender based Violence through Film Documentaries

The Nigerian Film Corporation and Spain through the African Women Foundation are fine tuning plans to begin the production of a documentary series that will aid the fight against women violence in Africa.
The Managing Director and Chief Executives of the NFC, Dr Chidia Madueke met with the President of the Foundation who also was the former Vice President of Spain, Madam Theresa Fernandez De La Vega at the Spanish Embassy in Abuja to discuss Modalities for the project.
They were in the company of the Spanish Ambassador to Nigeria, Mercelino Cabanas Anesorena who described Nigeria as great Country with rich culture.
The NFC and the African Women Foundation are concerned about the plights of women who suffer violence of any form and are set to deploy the potency of film medium (documentary) in addressing the menace.
Under Dr Maduekwe, the NFC has sought national and international partnerships aimed at solidifying the gains in the Nigerian motion picture industry with a view to creating better opportunities for filmmakers in the country to up their trade.
Just last week, the MD was in France where he signed a. Cooperation Agreement between the NFC and the French centre national du Cinema et de L'image anime (CNC) that covers Film Heritage, Artistic Cooperation, institutional Exchange, Distribution and Exhibition.
