Yesterday marked the opening night of the French-German Film Festival in Kampala, presented by the Goethe-Zentrum Institut Kampala and Alliance Francaise Kampala. Running from Thursday to Sunday, the festival screens feature length and short films from France, Germany, and Uganda at the Cineplex Cinema in Garden City mall.
The French-German Film Festival comes just after the 7th Amakula Kampala International Film Festival, which occurred from October 29th to November 6th. With a theme of Inevitable Transition, the festival screened over 200 films, most focusing on Africa, at the National Theatre and 20 video halls across Kampala.
It's a good time to be film lover in Kampala.
It's also a good time to be a craft lover in Uganda! Tomorrow is the International Women's Association Market Day Sale at the Kampala International School, Uganda. If you're in Kampala, come to Bukoto, say hello, and buy some fair trade goodies!
