In his address at the launch of a local film "The Gentleman," Shamu called on the private sector to invest resources in the local film industry.

"This will make the industry viable and lucrative. As a country we are ready to stand side by side with any other nations in the world that have proved their worth in the industry," he said.

Commenting about the film, The Gentleman, Shamu said the film had brilliantly represented the run down of African culture.

"The film has demonstrated talent within our local actors. Our local actors can exhibit immense talent if given the necessary resources," said Shamu.

The film that was shot in Harare and Johannesburg stars Phillip Chiyangwa, Munyaradzi Chidzonga and South African actor Presley Cheneyegae among others.
