Abuja -The Nigerian Film Corporation (NFC) said on Wednesday in Abuja that it had commenced the documentation of film guilds and associations operating in the nation’s movie industry.
The statement by NFC's Head, Public Affairs, Brian Etuk, said all film schools and film academies operating in the country were also to be enlisted in the documentation exercise.
It said all film festivals, festival awards,exhibition and markets were to undergo the documentation process.
It added that the documentation process was scheduled to commence from Wednesday.
The statement explained that the dearth of verifiable information on the film industry informed the reason for the documentation.
It said the exercise would ultimately lead to a robust film industry for Nigeria.
The statement said the documentation would enable film practitioners to have access to funds meant for the sector.
It will also ensure the sustenance of adequate industry support policies by the government for effective intervention in the film sector, it said.
