About two weeks ago, there was buzz about a Ugandan film being nominated for the Oscars…only thing is that Kony: Order From Above has not been nominated yet, but could be. The news was a big deal on what this means for Ugandan film and if we are ready for the big stage.
However, according to a document written by the Uganda Oscars Selection committee’s chairman Mr Godfrey Musinguzi, the film failed to meet minimum requirements to qualify for selections.
Musinguzi explained those The Uganda Academy Selection committees anonymously agreed not select the film for submission since the film failed to meet the mandatory technical requirements.
Journalist and Uganda’s Oscar committee member Mr Andrew M Kaggwa revealed that it was just misinformation in the media was that the film had already been selected for submission.
