Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board – Lagos State Government
Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board
In the last few decades, movie industry has witnessed tremendous boom in terms of number of films churned out by practitioners. This development comes with its own challenge to the people of the State particularly from the standpoint of determining the content vis-à-vis the moral values. Lagos State, which is the commercial nerve-centre of Nigeria, plays a leading role as the base and ‘residence’ of the Nigerian movie industry. In order to control and determine the content as conforming to the moral standards of people of the State, the Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board (LSFVCB) was established by Law on 18th August 2004. Since its establishment, the Board has played a key role in maintaining the required standard and creating a conducive environment for movie industry.
