2000 films censored in 2021- NFVCB Director




The National Film and Video Censor Board, NFVCB, says it censored over 2000 films in 2021.

The Executive Director of NFVCB, Adedayo Thomas, in a chat with News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday, said the figure got possible largely by online submission of films adopted amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thomas further stated that the online submission of films gave the Board the opportunity to censor a large number of films during the pandemic, adding that most of the films were not produced in Nigeria.

He added, “If you ask today that Nigerian should submit 1,000 content, they are ever ready. Probably they have been working on it because they are always in the field.

“When the online submission opened they quickly keyed into it and such sustained the momentum of our products in the world.

“We are able to sustain TV and others because the content was being channeled on daily basis in spite of the pandemic.

“Although it affected the production section, due to the fact that people find it difficult to go to a location, the new technology was utilised.”

He said that film had gone beyond an act for artistes, but has become a strong and vibrant aspect of the economy.
