Creatives Urged to Create Content that promote Societal Values
The Kenya Film Classification Board took part in the Worship Experience forum, held at the AIC Mlango Kubwa Church, Nairobi, on 12th March, 2023.
The Worship Experience, organized by renowned gospel singer, Eunice Lema in partnership with other gospel artistes, brought together audiences drawn from diverse religious institutions across Nairobi County.
Speaking during the event, KFCB's Corporate Communications Manager, Ms. Nelly Muluka, reiterated the Board’s commitment to partnering with religious institutions in a bid to create awareness on creation and consumption of clean audio-visual content in line with our consumer advisory function under the Media Literacy Program/Public Sensitization campaign dubbed: #YouAreWhatYouConsume.
"The Board also has an initiative dubbed: Parents Digital Literacy Program (PaDiL), aimed at equipping parents/ caregivers with digital skills to enable them monitor content consumed by their children.
Ms. Muluka urged content creators to produce content that promotes societal values and protect children from exposure to inappropriate content, adding that protecting children from exposure to harmful content is a collective responsibility.
She noted that clean content pays, adding that the Board is keen on creating a facilitative regulatory environment for local content creators to monetize their works for job opportunities and wealth creation
KFCB continues to leverage on platforms such as the Worship Experience Forum to articulate its mandate as enshrined in the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222 of the laws of Kenya.
