The short film form seems almost alien in Ghana where producers prefer standard runtime options, sometimes even stretching beyond bearable lengths. Ghallywood and Kumawood are fast becoming household references even though the names suck but hey, these movies abound in the market, on the streets and online.

Of course there are a few exception depending on whose opinion you’re seeking.
