Africa Magic calls for Ugandan film ideas


Ugandan movie makers have another chance to see their cinematic dreams come to reality courtesy of Africa Magic, a pay-TV service that draws its authenticity from claiming to be the hub where African stories are told cinematically. The 10-year-old pay-TV service is baiting cinema practitioners with a call for stories that will capture the East African essence focusing on the reflection of the life, traditions, lifestyles/ culture, wealth and relationships of one of the continent’s most recognized trading blocs.

Africa Magic is shopping for 56 fixed budget original, highly entertaining 60-minutes feature films with a view of capturing the heart and soul of ordinary East Africans. Those interested being part of this initiative have to submit a title and tagline of their cinematic project in a one page summary alongside the synopsis of the feature film on no more than one page. They should also include a bio or CV and email their package to The deadline is Sunday July 21, 2013. Good luck!

    There is an article in Friday’s Monitor newspaper that has the same information but with a gmail address. I am not sure whether these are the same people but maybe not. Please confirm.
