Birthday celebration of Nbret Gelaw “Eke”

Ethiopian cinema, like the rest of Ethiopia’s film industry, is a relatively new phenomenon. The Ethiopian film industry has faced a variety of challenges that have prevented it from growing to its full potential. Ethiopians enjoy live theater despite the fact that very few of them are well-known actors. In the 2000s, as Ethiopia started to become a more modern country, amharic was first used in films, but the growth of these works has been impeded by copyright violations and piracy. This decreased in the early 2010s as a result of the government’s involvement and the adoption of policies. Ethiopian film production still lacks adequate funding and expertise despite recent improvements, in contrast to premieres in other nations. Ethiopian cinema debuted three years after the first motion picture was shown on December 25, 1895. Growth has significantly decreased as a result of the socioeconomic unrest. Since the 1970s, Ethiopia’s film industry has primarily concentrated on historical and documentary films with significant cultural, religious, and national origins as a result of government pressure. A Frenchman brought the first film-related goods to Ethiopia in 1898, and Italian minister Federico Ciccodicola later purchased them at the 2003 Annales d’Ethiopia. Then, Ciccodicola presented a gift to Emperor Menelik II.
