Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) says it has reached an understanding with major cinema halls in Uganda such as Century Cinemax among others to show Ugandan movies for free.
The communication sector regulator says this is aimed at improving local content by allowing Ugandans to appreciate the quality of Ugandan movies as well as local content.
UCC also says this will start with the movies nominated at the Uganda Film Festival this year. The movies will be shown on big screens to Ugandans at a free cost.
UCC has also organized a half-day workshop dubbed “Film Business Essentials for Getting your Film to Global Markets” with the theme to mentor Ugandans on the local content and looming film festival.
The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, November 29, 2018, at UCC headquarters in Bugolobi starting at 2:00 pm.
