National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) has stated that it received and censored 375 movies produced by the Nigerian film industry in the third quarter of the year.
The Special Assistant on Media to the Executive Director/CEO, NFVCB, Mr Joshua Olomu, stated this in a report on Saturday in Abuja.
According to him the report captured all films submitted to the board’s offices from across the country.
“The report is for onward submission to the relevant Federal Government authority for the compilation of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the third quarter (GDP) Q3, 2021”.
The report disclosed that Lagos had the highest number of movies produced for the period with 159, while Abuja followed closely with 108 movies and Onitsha with 83 movies.
The analysis by location further showed that Kano had eight, while Port Harcourt and Jos recorded six, respectively, and Benin had five movies for the period under review.
The third quarter report, however, cited the number of movies produced during the quarter as a sharp decline, as against the 635 produced in the second quarter and 416 in the first quarter
