The Faculty of Arts, Federal University of Lafia in
collaboration with the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) invites
scholars of Film to submit articles for consideration in a book proposed with
the above title.
Film in Nigeria has developed a characteristic of being a
private sector driven innovating industry. It does not lack heroes /heroines
nor does it stay fixated with classics. It is within such a quickly evolving
environment that the need for the study of regulatory mechanisms like censorship
becomes apparent. The NFVCB was established as a regulatory body and has grown
in its activities alongside the fledgling Nigerian film industry. From a
concentric role of classifying films, the Board has had to grapple with
developments in technology and global trends in the film industry. The notion
of classification and censorship has in recent times been challenged by
Internet based film technology. These are defining moments for film
practitioners, regulators, economists and scholars.
The objective of the book project is to broaden the
enlightenment on and interrogate the concept, operation and issues in film
regulatory practice. The potential audience include film practitioners,
regulators, scholars, media practitioners, lecturers and students of film.
Writers may, in a broad sense, consider these different aspects
of film, film regulation and industry developments but are not limited to the
● Philosophical questions around the concept of film censorship
● Historical issues of Censorship of the Film industry in
● Creativity, film and censorship
