Akinbile-Yusuff said that the well-structured online application is concise, clear and basically easy to comprehend by interested individuals, urging filmmakers and practitioners to take advantage of the intervention fund as a great prospect to redeem and restore lost glory of film production in the State.

In her words: “The special Film Fund initiative is in line with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s passion for advancing and developing the entertainment and tourism sector.

ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY: LASG CHARGES PRACTITIONERS TO PROJECT VALUABLE CONTENT

The Lagos State Government has charged movie producers and other relevant stakeholders in the film and entertainment industry to project content that will sustain the rich cultural heritage for economic development.

Honourable Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs. Uzamat Akinbile-Yusuf, gave the charge while speaking at the stakeholders’ forum organised by the Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board (LSFVCB) with the theme, “Content Development as a Driver for Sustainable Growth in the Film And Video Industry”, held at the STO Event Centre, CBD, Ikeja - Lagos.

Mrs. Akinbile-Yusuf added that quality content is essential for the growth and development of the sector, noting that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is passionate about positive repositioning of the industry.

While appreciating the stakeholders for their resilience and doggedness during the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic and their continuous support for the State Government, the Commissioner sought improved professionalism amongst practitioners.

Her words: “The gathering of the top echelon in the entertainment and film industry here is a veritable opportunity to appreciate the consistency of the producers and all stakeholders amidst the COVID-19 pandemic; and also encourage us to ensure professionalism in our content delivery and creativity. We are in full support of the industry and will not rest on our oars until we achieve the desired result”, she averred.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Princess Adenike Adedoyin-Ajayi, urged practitioners to conduct thorough research on the environment and community before producing content.

“Thorough background check on the norms, values and tradition of our community will harness the delivery of content for efficacy and professionalism”, she asserted.

In her address, the Executive Secretary, Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board, Bukola Agbaminoja, acknowledged the commitment of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to utilising Arts, Culture, Film, Entertainment and Tourism as a catalyst for economic and social development.

She maintained that film producers should mirror and partner with the State government in shaping the society, having in mind that the entertainment industry nurtures, invents, influences and shapes society.

Speaking on the theme of the event, the Guest Speaker, Professor Sola Fosudo, cautioned that quality content is the soul of the film industry and, therefore, producers must strive to achieve it for acceptance in the society, noting that audiences will continue to seek foreign content as long as it indicates brilliancy and is breath-taking.

“We cannot be doing the same thing the same way over and over and expect a different result. In Nollywood, we need to move our seat away from its current position of mediocrity and complacency so that we can stand in a new position of excellence and professionalism”, Fosudo said.

Another Speaker and Cultural Administrator, Film and Media Specialist, Dr. Shaibu Husseini, pointed out that Nollywood must shift from dysfunctional content to a more acceptable cultural and professional-oriented industry for sustainable development and competitiveness.

CONTENTS REGISTRATION: LSFVCB ASSURES THE STAKEHOLDERS OF NO CAUSE FOR ALARM

The LSFVCB has noted the ongoing murmurings about the proposed "registration of contents by the entertainment industry's stakeholders" and hereby assures everyone that there's no cause for alarm.

The initiative of contents registration is not a stand alone but a part of the state government through the Board of a comprehensive all embracing policy initiative designed to resolve all the current challenges facing the entertainment industry such as:

1.) PIRACY
2.) EFFECTIVE DISTRIBUTION
3.) PRODUCTIONS FUNDING
4.) INTER AND INTRA GUILDS AND ASSOCIATIONS DISCIPLINE TO CURB THE PRESENT "ALL COMERS" AND "ALL SYSTEMS GO" AFFAIRS

The comprehensive policy initiative also encompasses mass job creation, profitable investments guarantee and accelerated rural areas development. The piecemeal announcement of contents registration was a communication gap that creates the unfortunate impression of a levy without corresponding benefits which is contrary to the State government through the Board's plan for a rejuvenated industry duly empowered to function and regularly contribute to the creative and economic well being of the stakeholders, the investors, general public and the country as a whole.

Right now the comprehensive policy initiative is being perfected alongside wide consultation of the entire spectrum of the industry's stakeholders.

The LSFVCB in the meantime calls on the stakeholders to await the Board's comprehensive new policy and not pre judge based on the "contents registration" only. Once again we assure the stakeholders that there is no cause for alarm.
