Distribution In Brief:


- Global media have reported that Nollywood, Nigeria’s film industry might well be the largest producer of videos and the second or third film producer in the world, churning out some 200 videos for the home video market every month... Nigerian films are currently receiving wider distribution – in the USA for example - as Nigerian producers and directors are attending more internationally acclaimed film festivals. However, most of these films are in English or in regional languages, and a few production houses are now looking to translate the best of them into Spanish, German and French.

- Nu Metro will open the first all-digital cinema complex in Africa, according to content executive for Nu Metro Cinemas, Mark Harris, this week in the Emporium at Emperors Palace, Johannesburg, South Africa. The six-screen multiplex, owned and operated by Nu Metro Cinemas, is part of the redevelopment at the entertainment venue. The cinema multiplex also has 3D cinemas, Dolby Digital Surround Sound, stadium seating, bar and lounge facilities, a combination of beanbags to top end seating and one of the largest cinemas in Africa known as the Pantheon - featuring 517 leather VIP seats.
