The Amakula International Film Festival is Uganda’s oldest independent film festival that aims to contribute to a vibrant local film industry, by broadening access to and developing audiences for quality African film production; inspiring local film makers to produce quality local films based on own stories; facilitating, presenting and promoting local film productions; and offering a professional networking platform for the film making community in East Africa and beyond.

The 11th edition of the festival has been activated and two venues have been selected to host the festival on different dates, Kampala Film School ( 14-15 March) and Uganda Museum (16-17 March).

The Amakula International Film Festival is co-produced by Bayimba Cultural Foundation, Maisha Film Lab, Kampala Film School, Goethe Zentrum/UGCS and the Uganda Museum.
