Kenya Films and Classification Board License fee

41

Kenya films and classification Board has written to content creators requiring them to obtain license before they start shooting any film or video for commercial purpose. Majority of the content creators in Kenya have been notified to visit the institution’s offices in order to obtain the licenses required.

Below is the license fee charged by KFCB:

Filming fee per day—Ksh 1,000

Documentary/TVC/Advertisement/Music Video/Corporate Video/Infomercial/Travelogue/short film/Testimonial/TV Series Episode/Webisode—Ksh 5,000

Full Length feature film,TV series per Season and Web Series Per season—Ksh 15,000

Those youth shooting TikTok videos in Nairobi CBD will not be spared. They will be required to pay Ksh 1,000 per day or Ksh 15,000. This will force them to stop going to the CBD to take videos.

Also affected are TikTokers.All of them will be required to pay Ksh 15,000 in order to operate their channels.

The institution has also stated that they MUST send their Videos for approval before they are uploaded onto their channels—I don’t think this will be possible!

Already, many content creators have received notification from KFCB to obtain Licenses before they continue with their content creation work.
