RESILIENCE IN THE ANGLOPHONE CINEMA AMIDST THE CRISIS IN THE NORTH WEST AND SOUTH WEST

The film industry has been greatly affected by the on going crisis or war in the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon. Buea and Bamenda were fast becoming the creative capitals of the entertainment industry then the crisis set in and disrupted many things, with actors and film technicians relocating to other regions and countries.

This caused a slow down in the regions but some of the internally displaced artists prospered in their regions and countries of refuge.This is evident in the many ANGLOPHONE films that have gone on to win national and international awards although I have to mention that there’s still some cinema activity in some parts of these regions.While the crisis is on ANGLOPHONE films have continued to be the leading films in the ECRANS NOIR cinema festival and most of the best actors and actresses have come from that part of the country.

The first Camerounian films to feature on big international platforms like Netflix and Amazon have been ANGLOPHONE. Working under restricting conditions much has been done. While some as mentioned above have succeeded the vast majority of actors and actresses have had to suspend their cinema activities because of the few openings at home and in the land of refuge, but the big picture is that the ANGLOPHONE film industry is getting stronger, this is evident in the number of ANGLOPHONE productions going on around the country.
