The National Film and Video Censors Board, NFVCB, has announced a new policy of a two-week maximum timeline for the issuance of licenses for movie distribution in the country.
The move, according to the agency, is to speed up the licensing process for movie distribution and exhibition in Nigeria. The agency says it recognizes distribution and exhibition as a key activity of the movie sector of the nation’s economy.
In a statement signed by Ceaser Kagbo,the Acting Head, Corporate Affairs, NFVCB, the agency said the new licensing regime will only benefit those that meet all requirements for any given category of license sought.
The new policy, which will take effect from October, 2014 will not acknowledge any distributor, exhibitor or exhibition premise without valid license.
