After facing criticism for saying “not every movie should be in cinemas”, Rita Dominic, Nollywood star, says she won’t relent in her quest for quality output in the industry.
In an Instagram post on Saturday, the actress vowed to “make better films”. Dominic said she will do better as a producer and an actor.
She said it’s high time the film industry paid attention to its consumers, the viewers.
The actress wrote: I wanted to post a video but it was too long so I opted for a long post. A couple of days ago I posted a quote to motivate active members of my beloved industry.
“You decided to build a nice big table there, gathered us on top and shook it till we all had to pay attention.
“Guess what!! I have heard you!I have heard you as an actor. I have heard you as a producer. I will do better. I have never been one not to listen to constructive criticism so it is to my advantage to listen again.
“Glad you understood the intention of my post. We are cultivating a cinema culture and we cannot do it without our audience. They have spoken and I have a better grasp of their frustrations. It is a positive thing to have our consumers emotionally invested In our films. I want to request that our viewers not give up on going to the cinemas to support films. If a film is good encourage the filmmakers by telling others to see it.
“You have an important role to play in the development of the Nigerian film industry and you have taken the first steps by letting your voices be heard. You can now stop shaking the table so we can get down to make better films for you.”
