He also disclosed that this year's event is themed 'The Nigerian Movie Industry as a Catalyst for Economic Growth and National Transformation: Issues and Perspectives.'
Don Pedro also said that, "The Nigerian film industry continues to be one of the most fascinating film milieus in Africa: Its growth is still spectacular because of the role it has continued to play in the development of our society. We believe that the film industry shall and will continue to play a vital role in popularizing corporate brand and government policies and ideologies amongst the people as well as to consolidate and build new relationships between the government and private sector, culture and economic development."
