You risk 5-year jail time if you don’t bring your films for preview – National Film Authority

You risk 5-year jail time if you don’t bring your films for preview – National Film Authority

The National Film Authority has served notice of enforcement of the law that empowers it to preview and classify audio visual content meant for broadcast.

This includes feature films, short films, TV series, selected TV programs, documentaries among others.

There have been calls in the last few days for some regulatory action after it emerged that two teenagers allegedly killed a 10-year-old boy for rituals.

Former President John Agyekum Kuffour is urging authorities to clamp down on the activities of fraudulent traditional priests using the media to propagate get-rich-quick messages.

The National Media Commission says it is unable to deal with the matter as it lacks the legal mandate. Its chairman, Yaw Boadu Ayeboafu also says blaming TV spiritualist for the killing amounts to a lazy investigation.
