September 30, 2014 – The efforts of Nigeria apex movie industry regulator, the National Film and Video Censors’ Board, (NFCVB), to redefine the movie sector in Nigeria is not going un-noticed by key industry players.

The leading film-maker, who is set to premiere his latest work, a psychological thriller titled, October 1, further underscored the impact the regulatory agency is making on the movie industry and by extension, the promotion of arts, culture and traditions of the Nigerian people and the entire black race.
