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 firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is Sunday July 21, 2013. Good luck!
