The public relations officer of the film producers association of Ghana (FIPAG) Madam Rosaline Osei called on film producers who are currently not members to join to benefit the Zylofon Arts Fund which goes with several benefits.
The Fund which apart from the financial support also comes with equipment support like ultramodern cameras for the shooting of quality movies and creme dela creme caste for any FIPAG member who might need it to enrich his/her artworks.
The Zylofon Arts Fund executives also appealed against the use of Apps and television screening as a way of marketing their content and rather find innovative ways of doing it.
