NFVCB Boss Rates Nigerian Film Contents Among The Best Worldwide
The Executive Director of the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB), Adedayo Thomas, has rated Nigerian film contents as one of the greatest in terms of value in the global film industry.
Thomas made this declaration at a two-day training of NFVCB staff recently in Bauchi.
He said that foreign investors came to Nigeria to seek content for their movies, meaning that most foreign films had Nigerians as part of their production team.
Thomas also noted that the industry was the most significant contributor to employment in the country with the number of cinemas increasing from 19 to 42 and number of screens also rocketing from 20 to over 140 between 2017 and 2019, while more are still expected.
The NFVCB boss said that there were emerging technologies being used by stakeholders to improve production and film content; hence, the urgent need to meet up with such trends.
Adebayo called on all in attendance at the training session to use the knowledge gained from the training to boost productivity within the organisation and various other departments.
He warned against the sale of unclassified and unlicensed movies in the market, saying that anyone found dabbling in such activities would be sanctioned accordingly.
