National Film Institute – NFI

The National Film Institute located in Jos, Plateau State of Nigeria was established in accordance with the provision of the National Film Policy (1992) and the Decree No. 61 of (1979) setting up the Nigerian Film Corporation. The Institute is designed and equipped to provide training of the highly specialized manpower needs of the film industry.  The choice of Jos was based on its friendly weather and the abundance of beautiful scenery for film shooting locations.
