340 Films Produced By Nollywood In Fourth Quarter Of 2022 �

The National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) has revealed that it got and censored 340 movies from Nollywood in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The information was provided in a statement by NFVCB Executive Director, Alhaji Adedayo Thomas during the weekend.

According to Thomas, the figures show all films submitted to the board from across the country.

“The report is for onward submission to the relevant Federal Government agency as input for the compilation of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the fourth quarter (Q4, 2022).

“The report shows a decrease in the number of movies produced from 489 in the third quarter to 340 in the fourth quarter of 2022.

“118 of the films came in from the Abuja censorship centre of the board, representing the chunk of the movies produced during the period under review.

“Followed by Lagos State with 115 movies as indicated in the report, Onitsha recorded 91, Kano nine and Benin four movies respectively", he stated.

The analysis also shows that while Jos recorded three films Port Harcourt, Ibadan, Bauchi and Abeokuta did not rake in any for the period under review.

“This clearly portrays the contribution of the film industry to economic growth in terms of direct and indirect jobs in the entire value chain in filmmaking.

“Our cordial relationship with the recognised guilds and associations in the industry has played an important role as we urge them to ensure that their members submit their films for censorship and approval.

“As a Federal Government agency committed to providing an enabling environment for filmmakers, NFVCB will always ensure that uncensored and other unwholesome films do not find their way into the Nigeria market", Thomas added.
