Genre : Festival
Principal country concerned : Column : Cinema/tv

The first Amakula Kampala International Film Festival was inaugurated on May 21, 2004. The success of the first festival has secured it a place as an annual event in Kampala. The festival will continue to showcase world cinema both classic and contemporary, with a special focus on African cinema, while bringing international and regional filmmakers together to help create an inspiring and conducive environment for cinema culture. Focused every year on a specific theme the festival will screen films, invite filmmakers to introduce their work, organize workshops and seminars on the practice and theory of film in general and new approaches and developments in Africa in particular, and commission special multi-disciplinary projects in order to inspire an energetic independent culture. A film festival is particularly the place where communities meet and views are exchanged, serving as a platform where all artistic points converge and new roads can be taken
