The first Tiv-language film, Anchovul (Orphan), was made in 2002 by (the now late) Chris Ioryisa. But as we know the Kwagh Hir theater has long existed before this. The Tiv film industry has grown tremendously since 2002 producing at least 15-30 films each year. The N.K.S.T media service has been crucial to this growth, producing several Tiv films every year. There are also many independent film producers who put out various good films every year. Recently Nollywood has jumped on board as well producing a few "based on Tiv culture movies" in English. Most Tiv movies can be purchased on dvd locally, from various sources across the state.
