An excellent gospel actor and director, evangelist Isaac Femi-Akintunde has confirmed that the quality of gospel films in Nigeria is improving on a daily basis unlike those days.
He made this statement recently in an exclusive interview with Gospel Film News.
Isaac Femi Akintunde who joined Mount Zion Faith Ministries International in 1998 after his training at Mount Zion Institute of Christian Drama in 1997 noted that there is clear difference in the movies being produced in those days and the ones being produced now, saying gospel film makers are not stagnant but improving.
He opined that more gospel films can now be accessed via social media and almost everybody go on social media.
While responding to issue of some movies shot but not released, Akintunde said there is nobody that go on film location that will not want the film to get to the hands of the audience but there is nobody that is funding gospel film makers.
“Anyone that go on film location and couldn’t edit the film, it’s not his fault, maybe he started the location based on faith believing that God will provide, and God provided for the first phase and he is trusting God for the post production. So I can’t blame anybody it’s just that we are faith-based,” he stated.
He however advised upcoming actors to just hold on to God, trust God for everything.
“Just hang onto God because even we that you are seeing up there are also trusting God for so many things, you keep trusting and God will be meeting your needs one by one as He’s meeting us at the very point of our own need,” he admonished.
He concluded by appreciating the efforts of Gospel Film News, saying the media outfit is making all efforts to showcase gospel film makers to the world and creating awareness about what the film makers do.
