NFVCB Plans To Track Down Nollywood’s First Queer Film “Ife”

The National Film Video and Censors Board (NFVCB) has plans to track down on Nollywood’s first queer film “Ife” which is already in the post-production stage.

 

According to Premium Times, NFCVB Executive Director, Adedayo Thomas announced in a recent interview that the film and its makers will be tracked and sanctioned.

 

As long as it is Nigerian, it will be tracked down. Even those who are involved in it too. Before you get yourself involved in certain things, there must be a contract. What is the contract? Ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

If you say you’re shooting a movie on the conception of lesbianism, fine, that is the work. It has not gotten to our table, when it gets to our table, we will know that this is what we are going to do.” He said.

Meanwhile, the film’s producer, Pamela Adie has said the movie will not be released on YouTube or in local cinemas.

“It’s not going to be on YouTube, we are building our own platform where people can pay to watch movies like an on-demand streaming platform. Maybe if Netflix decides to show it after a year of release, why not? For now, we don’t plan to release it on any other site”.
