Tsedi finally revealed her feelings for Dani

Ethiopian cinema, like the country’s whole film industry, is a relatively new phenomena. Although the country’s film industry is flourishing, obstacles have kept it from attaining its full potential. Ethiopia once had a thriving live theater scene that produced a very modest number of successful stage actors. As Ethiopian films modernize in the 2000s, Amharic has been added, but because home video and DVD distribution is so widespread, copyright violations and piracy have impeded their advancement. This decreased in the early 2010s as a result of government participation and the application of policies. Contrary to international premieres, Ethiopian film production has remained amateurish and of low quality despite recent improvements. Few individuals were familiar with overseas box office grossers prior to the 1990s. Haile Gerima, Salem Mekuria, Yemane Demissie, and Teshome Gabriel are among the most well-known people to have helped Ethiopian movies become successful abroad. Ethiopian cinema’s use of Amharic increased noticeably in the 2000s. However, many directors were worried about piracy because of the widespread use of DVDs. According to the Addis Abeba Culture and Tourism Bureau, production rose from 10 to 112 movies between 2005 and 2012. The Ethiopian government announced plans in 2013 to collaborate with various industry participants to develop a new film strategy.
