Public Screening of Film ‘Mino’
Local film enthusiasts thronged the Nairobi Film Centre (NFC) on Friday 24th 2023, for the public screening of MINO, a local film produced and directed by Kenyan creatives under the Spot Africa Media Production.
The screening of 'MINO' was a testament that Kenyan film producers and creatives have what it takes to populate our local TV channels and cinema theaters with local content, and thus monetize their content and talent.
The Kenya Film Classification Board examined and duly rated the film as 16 (Not suitable for persons under the age of 16) in line with the requirements of the Films and Stage Plays Act Cap 222 of the Laws of Kenya.
Speaking after the film screening, KFCB Ag. CEO Christopher Wambua, commended Spot Africa Media production for their commitment and belief in the production of local films.
"As the turnout for this screening bears out, Kenyans appreciate our own authentic stories," he said, noting that there is a ready market for local content consumption.
Mr. Wambua affirmed KFCB's commitment to support the growth of the Creative Economy, noting that the Board has proposed various regulatory interventions in a bid to spur the sector.
"We have proposed various regulations and guidelines that will be published for public participation on Tuesday 28th March, 2023 and we call upon stakeholders like you to give your input and comments", he said.
Mr. Wambua also said that the Board is keen on rehabilitating and refurbishing the NFC to a state-of-the-art facility that will continue to create a platform for content creators to showcase and monetize their creativity.
The screening was graced by representatives from the Kenya Film Commission (KFC), Kenya Cultural Centre, National Archives, Meru TV, Multi-Choice Kenya, content creators, film lovers, among other participants.
