Nollywood Unions Secure Insurance Deal For All Members

Thirteen unions representing the Nigeria film industry have signed a life insurance, healthcare and pension deal with an insurance firm.

The 13 unions – Association of Motion Picture Entertainment Editors of Nigeria (AMPEEN); Creative Designers’ Guild of Nigeria (CDGN); Cinematographers’ Society of Nigeria (CSN); Directors Guild of Nigeria (DGN); Film & Video Producers’ and Marketers’ Association of Nigeria (FVPMAN); Independent Television Producers Association (ITPAN); Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN); National Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (NANTAP); Screenwriters’ Guild of Nigeria (SWGN); Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) and United Movie Practitioners’ Association of Nigeria (UMPAN) – cover most of the registered Nollywood practitioners and this is the first time the industry is making such move.

This insurance deal is expected to help entertainers lead a better life, especially when they have health challenges that necessitate appealing for donations from the public. Also retired actors can draw a pension.
