“Piracy has affected the traditional DVD distribution network” – Tunde Kelani

Veteran filmmaker, Tunde Kelani stated in a recent interview that it is unwise to release a film that will be pirated 24 hours after release. He said that he has works that can be released but he has deliberately decided not to do so in the last four years.

“As a matter of fact, there was no time I left my job as a filmmaker. But for the last four years, I have not released any new production. I have movies I can release but it wouldn’t be wise to do that because it will be pirated within 24 hours. It is not sustainable to keep working for pirates because we invest a lot in our movies.” He said.

Kelani, whose last released movie was ‘Dazzling Mirage,’ however said he’s hopeful things will change this New Year.

He said that “piracy has affected the traditional DVD distribution network; so, we have to look towards technology and other platforms. This year, I think we will have solutions”.

Recall that Kelani resigned as the Chairman of the board of the National Film and Video Censors Board, to focus more on his film academy, Mainframe Film and Media institute.
