Adedayo Thomas told staff at a two-day training course in Bauchi that most foreign investors have Nigerians on their production team and also visit the country in search of content for their movies.

“The industry is the most significant contributor to employment in the country with the number of cinemas increasing from 19 to 42 and the number of screens also rocketing from 20 to over 140 between 2017 and 2019, while more are still expected,” he said.

“There are emerging technologies being used by stakeholders to improve production and film content; hence, the urgent need to meet up with such trends.”

He urged everyone to apply the knowledge learned to boost productivity within the organisation and also warned against sales of unclassified and unlicensed movies.
