Uganda: Amakula Kampala Film Festival

Uganda Imsoniac attended the Amakula Kampala Film Festival in Uganda: “Every personality documentary film should make you feel comfortable and engage you. The director should make you love or loathe the character – it doesn’t really matter what – and you should just feel justified to do so and comfortable with your decision. In the case of Retour à Gorée (2007) which was shown at the Amakula Kampala Film Festival yesterday, the director Pierre-Yves Borgeaud hit all the right notes.”

  • With the advent of streaming sites such as youtube, viddler and, I hope that the organizers of these film festivals and the film makers can begin streaming or retailing live streaming of their films through the Internet.
    I think this would prevent otherwise phenomenal films from fading into obscurity should they be unable to secure a distributor.
    The film makers can also use avenues such as Global Voices Online to promote their films to their desired audiences.
