Euro-Uganda Film Festival

British Council Uganda
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The Euro-Uganda Film Festival (EUFF) took place 10-20 June 2018 under the theme Celebrating Cultural Heritage Through Film. The EUFF showcased Europe and Uganda's diverse cultural heritage. Launched on 09 May 2018 at the EU Delegate's Residence in Kololo during the EU day celebrations, the festival drew participation from 10 countries including Denmark, Belgium, Britain, Italy, Sweden, Germany, France, Austria, Ireland and Uganda. Although Poland and Romania took part in all the build-up activities eventually they were not able to screen their films. Screenings were done in five venues across Kampala including the National Theatre, Kamwokya playground, Design Hub, Jazzville Bugolobi and Alliance Francaise.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

The festival was a success in terms of audience attendance, quality of programming and achievement of the set objective. Although a total number of 1,610 festival goers were registered, the attendance was significantly higher given that children were not registered as per British Council policy. The two community screenings in particular had a predominantly young audience. Some guests also did not feel comfortable giving out their information and were therefore not registered. The programme was diverse with activities, audience participation and had many Ugandan films.
