Board Urges Upcoming Creatives to Monetize their Talents.
The Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) Corporate Communications Manager, Ms. Nelly Muluka, has urged upcoming local creatives to take advantage of the various Government Programs in the Creative sector for the commercialization and monetization of their talents.
Ms. Muluka was speaking during the roll-out of the Creatives in Arts and Film Creation Digital Literacy (Cafil) Program in Eldoret, Uaisin-Gishu County, flanked by officers from KFCB's North Rift Regional office, among other participants, on 24th October 2023.
The Board's Cafil Program seeks to empower creatives in arts and film content creation to create content that upholds Kenya's cultural values while safeguarding children from exposure to inappropriate media content.
"The Cafil also seeks to empower digital content creators to effectively utilize and monetize their artistic works on digital platforms as well as create awareness on the effects of media content and emerging technologies on vulnerable populations, especially children," Ms. Muluka said.
Through the program, the Board also aims to sensitize creative on what constitutes creating appropriate film content for different age groups for responsible digital parenting and appropriate viewing practices.
Ms. Muluka reiterated the KFCB’s commitment to supporting initiatives geared towards identifying and nurturing talents among the youths in the Creative sector for job opportunities and wealth creation.
The event saw students from the University of Eldoret, Eldoret Polytechnic, Elgon View College and Cambridge College, among other institutions, showcase their diverse creative talents.
