The Kenya Film Classification Board has assured Kenyans engaging in the creative space of the Board’s commitment towards creating a facilitative environment that is geared towards helping them monetize their content.
The Board highlighted that it is reviewing the applicable licence fees across all market segments of the film sector with a view of encouraging more young people to venture into the creative economy.
Board members who spoke during the COVID-19 and Digital Employability Graduation Ceremony noted that the Board is working with the parent ministry to introduce a self-regulatory framework.
The framework is meant to promote the ease of doing business in the sector by ensuring that broadcasters and commercial online streaming service platforms are able to self-classify content.
The employability programme trained vulnerable women from informal settlements and rural areas to leverage on the digital space to help them create and monetize their creative works with the aim of enhancing their livelihoods.
At least 2000 vulnerable women graduated.
