After starting in May with an engaging monologue challenge, Cinema Ug’s innovative event, ‘Women In Film,’ reached its peak on August 17, 2023. This programme aims to boost the influence and skills of women in the film industry. It kicked off with various exciting activities like the monologue challenge, workshops, an enlightening symposium, and an incubation programme.
The main event however, was the “Women in Film Symposium,” a panel discussion. This talked about the challenges that women face in the film industry and explored where they’re headed in the future. It was held at the British Council and supported by Goethe Zentrum Kampala.
The symposium brought together people from the industry for a lively conversation.
The panel included accomplished women from different parts of the industry: Eleanor Nabwiso, a producer and actress; Nazzinda Ruth, a director and producer; Lola Atwine, a writer and producer; and Racheal Nduhukire, a dynamic actress.
