Ms. Ibinabo Fiberesima, the first female President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) and President and National Director of Miss Earth Nigeria has been re-elected for a second term as the President of the AGN.
She won by a landslide at the election held yesterday Thursday October 16, 2014.
The ex-beauty queen was returned for a second term in office after she was voted for by majority of the state chapters according to Nigeria Films.
She told me to pray for her victory Thursday morning and I did and when I asked her for the result, she gave me the good news.
"Won. Landslide victory," she said in her text message last night.
Congratulations to her and her team.
Ibinabo Fiberesima has big plans for Nigerian actors and the Nigerian film industry.
The IMAX Corporation is already expecting to welcome her in London where she is going to meet with Giovanni Dolci, Vice President, Theatre Development. Dolci is a digital cinema expert and was in Nigeria in July 2013 on the interests of IMAX to establish mega cinemas in the most populous country in Africa and home of Nollywood, the largest film industry in the continent.
See the report on Nairaland.
She will visit the IMAX cinemas in London during her visit.
IMAX theater network has more than 837 theatres (IMAX, IMAX 3D and IMAX Dome) in more than 57 countries.
President Goodluck Jonathan is committed to the global film distribution of Nollywood movies, because of the popularity of Nigerian home videos in the world. He is the Grand Patron of the Actors Guild of Nigeria and has been lauded for his government's US$200 million Entertainment Industry Intervention Fund and with an extra N3 billion grant given to the Project Nollywood scheme to boost the Nigerian film industry. The fund has co-financed the production of Tony Abulu's "Doctor Bello" and Biyi Bandele's "Half of a Yellow Sun" and several filmmakers and others have benefited from the Project Nollywood grant. - See more at: http://www.nigeriansreport.com/2014/10/ibinabo-fiberesima-re-elected-as.html
