The “Creative Industry Regulatory Quartet” otherwise known as “THE QUARTET”, is a forum that comprises of similar regulatory agencies in the Nigeria film industry made up of
|Nigerian Film Cooperation (NFC)|
|National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB)|
|National Broadcasting Commission (NBC)|
|Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC)|
It was initially created by the four agencies on the 6th October, 2005 with the primary objective of providing a platform for a strong inter-agency co-operation that will culminate in a better synergy in coordinating policies and activities of their respective mandates and address issues of common concern. Although the forum went underground for 3 years, it was not until the 16th July, 2009 that the DG of NFVCB, Mr. Emeka Mba re-awakened the forum by calling on all members to re-unite. The DG reminded the Quartet of the benefits of sustaining the forum, which includes sharing of ideas, interfacing and exchanging of views/information for collaboration among members and also for the enhancement of the film industry in Nigeria.
Basically the forum acts as a liaison were matters of common interest among members and the industry are tabled for discussion and a unanimous line of action taken. The forum is made up of two bodies; the Chief Executive Officers (CEO’s) meeting and other Subordinate Officers meetings; both meet once a month. The “Subordinate Officers” deliberate on policies and make recommendations for the CEO’s rectification.
