Guyana’s burgeoning movie industry has grown in leaps and bounds this past year.
An entire new service industry has opened that has the potential to rival GuySuCo when it comes to raising foreign box office numbers.
With a growing audience, flush with investors clamoring to get a piece of the action that has some unbelievable profit returns, the industry has been attracting significant attention.
The past year has not been a boring one, by any means, for Guyana. There were quite a few movies that hit the big screen. There were many high points and of course the low ones too.
From the happenings in the National Assembly, to controversies surrounding the parking meter and oil contracts, the people were drawn to the hits at Giftland and Princess movie theatres.
We have managed to compile the best movies of the year based on surveys done by the opposition and verified by the Government.
In no particular order, here is the list:
