Mr. Adedayo Thomas, Executive Director, National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB), has ranked Nigerian film contents as one of the best in terms of value in the industry worldwide.

Thomas made this known during a two-day training of North East NFVCB staff, themed: “Film and Video Works in the New Horizon”, in Bauchi.

He said that foreign investors travelled into the country to seek contents for their movies, saying that most foreign movies had Nigerians as part of their team.

Thomas also said that the industry created the largest employment in the country with increasing number of cinemas from 19 to 42 and screens from 20 to over 140 from 2017 to date, while more are still being expected.

“The film industry creates the largest jobs in Nigeria from the various positions in film setting to cameramen, sound lighting, among others,’’ he said.

The NFVCB boss said there were emerging technologies employed by stakeholders to improve on film contents and production, hence, the need to meet up with such trends.
