The 7th Amakula Kampala International Film Festival for 2010: Inevitable Transition

We are pleased to announce that the seventh edition of the Amakula Kampala International Film Festival for 2010 will occur from October 29th to November 6th, 2010 with the theme of Inevitable Transition.

The festival will be presented at the National Theatre as well as twenty video halls located in the five districts of Kampala. The festival will welcome international guests from the African filmmaking community as well as a range of programs prompted by the festival theme.  Films will be presented from around the world but as usual most of the program is devoted to covering the African continent through classic and contemporary cinema.

The festival will also present the regular events that have become customary: The Congress on the East African Cinema, The VJ Slam, the Golden Impala Award for the best short film from Eastern Africa, the Symposium on the festival theme, the Bon Fire Celebration and a range of multi-disciplinary performances specially commissioned for the festival.
