Kenya, China say Lights, Camera, Action!

NAIROBI, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) - Kenya is seeking to sign film co-production agreements with China in order to expand the local movie sector, a senior government official said on Monday.

Joe Mucheru, cabinet secretary in the Ministry of Information Communication Technology (ICT), told journalists in Nairobi that the country has launched a screenplay competition that will enable the country produce quality films.

"This competition is great and opens co-production opportunities in the film and creative industries to explore how Kenya can take advantage of the Africa and China markets, with a possible total market of 2 billion movie viewers; eventually, we hope to sign a co-production treaty between Kenya and China government which will be a first for the country and a big boost to the local industry," Mucheru said during the launch of the screenplay competition.
