The Interim President of the Liberia Movie Union (LIMU), Eddie M. Gibson, has disclosed plans to build the capacity of artists to ensure that they gain international acclamation.
Making the disclosure at LIMU’s first general meeting at the G.W. Gibson High School on the Capital By-Pass in Monrovia recently, Gibson admonished the artists to obtain the requisite qualifications and skills, if they are to improve in their career.For his part, LIMU interim executive official, Ernest J. Momo, said building the capacity of technicians and artists in the movie sector will benefit the institution not only in Liberia but also in Africa and the world at large.
“We cannot be talking about meeting international standard without building our capacity,” Momo stressed.
It can be recalled that recently an Interim leadership of the Liberia Movie Union was inducted into office at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT).
The interim leadership is to ensure that members of the union are reconciled, to finalize the drafting of the Constitution of the Union, and take it to election in December.
The leadership comprises Eddie M. Gibson, president; Rev. G. Hamilton Karsor, Secretary General; Messrs Ernest Momo, Andrew Mossima, and Henry Marshall, members.
