NFVCB treats stakeholders to new opportunities

TOMORROW, April 29, at the Musa Yar’adua Centre, Memorial Drive, Central Area Abuja, the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) will hold a Consumer Forum. The Conference, according to the management of the body, is organised to help engage the consumers on a wide range of regulatory responsibilities of the NFVCB and to help distill some of the information available.

Also serving to educate the general public of their responsibilities to the society and the film maker, acting Director General, Ms Patricia Bala, says that the forum will help transform the movie industry by proffering solutions and ideas which will add value to the making of any film in Nigeria.

“The Nigerian movie industry with its rich cultural and academic tradition makes an attractive choice and great story line for producers but unfortunately we have found ourselves ‘swimming in the bottle ‘creating the same story line over and over again. The idea behind this parliament is to tickle the intellectual imagination of our producers and movie stakeholders to ‘think out of the box’ and create movies that will stand the test of time,” Bala says.

She stated that the consumer forum represents a new opportunity of sorts. “There is an overwhelming consensus within the public that the movie industry needs reform. Therefore, the aim of this forum is, of course, to work closely with the public and other stakeholders because we all share the common goal of getting this problem fixed,” the DG adds.
