Veronica’s Wish, a film that chronicles a woman’s journey to her forever even with a deadly disease was the top winning film at the Uganda Film Festival that concluded at the Serena Hotel last night.

The festival had been going on for a week with screenings happening in cinemas in Entebbe, Naalya and Kampala; the free screenings mostly exhibited the films that had been submitted in the festival and were in competition for different awards.

Over the years, the award gala has always been that one thing people look out for since they always give people a chance to have their films seen by a general audience that barely accesses the films as well as the publicity the awards come with.

Veronica’s Wish, since its premiere was thought to be a front runner thanks to the fact that it is enjoyable and serves a perfect love story.

The film won Best Screenplay, Actress, Supporting Actor, Sound, Production Design, Editing, Feature Film and Best Director which made Rehema Nanfuka the first female to win the accolade.

Other winners included Stella Nantumbwe, Best Supporting Actress for her role as a prostitute in Matt Bish’s Bella, Courtinho Kemiyondo’s short film Kyenvu took home Best Short Film while former Ebonies actors Simon Base Kalema and Raymond Rushabiro walked away with Best Supporting and Best Actor accolades.

Veteran actor Abby Mukiibi walked away with the Life Time Achievement Award for his contributions towards drama for almost twenty years.
