Filmhouse To Launch Streaming Platform

The Filmhouse Cinemas and FilmOne Distribution and Production Ltd, has revealed plans to unveil its streaming platform, ‘Myfilmhouse.ng’.

The Group Managing Director, Kene Okwuosa, revealed the unique features of the platform on Friday.

“What it allows us to do is that when movies are done in the run in the theatrical window, we can dump it immediately online so that our audiences can have access to it.

“Where traditionally you would have found that audiences that are having to wait for months before the movies can get to TV and other syndicated platforms, it allows you a window where you can drop it in real time, right after the theatrical window and it is premium content.”

Okwuosa however, assured that streaming on the platform will very affordable and accessible.

“We are the only one offering premium Nollywood content in this region. Premium content that we produce, distribute or aggregate for a third party as well as top Hollywood content. The price point is also very unique. Depending on what type of content, it ranges from N400 to N700. It is very affordable and accessible.”

Speaking more on the app, the Managing Director of FilmOne Distribution and Production, Moses Babatope, said it is of great advantage to filmmakers to showcase their films.

He said: “Not all films can make it to the cinema, especially films that may not have that commercial appeal to the audience. They can use this window to get to their audience.”

In addition to the group’s projects, it will host a film gala in February 2019 in partnership with Moet and Chandon, to reward aspiring filmmakers in the industry.
