The Kingdom of Morocco recently invited the Northern Nigerian Film Industry, Kannywood, to the Kingdom as part of its Africa integration strategy and to promote cultural exchange between the two countries.

The Morocco Film Industry and Kannywood have common areas of similarities and synergies. The two industries already share a lot of cultural similarities most especially in terms of religion, tradition and heritage.

The relationship when fully conceived will avail Kannywood the opportunity to learn from the Moroccan Film Industry, collaborate, co-produce and assess industry challenges with the aim of providing assistance to these challenges.
