MNet seeks Ugandan films
MultiChoice-owned African pay TV channel MNet is planning to commission original Ugandan films for its channels.
This move is aimed at engaging Ugandan filmmakers and giving them the opportunity to expose their films to a wider African audience. Mbu.ug, an entertainment news website for Uganda and East Africa, reports that themes should focus on all facets of daily life.
Interested persons between ages 20 and 49 can submit films (up to 90 minutes long) with an engaging storyline in English and/or Luganda. Subtitles must be provided for any parts in Luganda.
There will be pitching sessions for shortlisted proposals before the final selection, after which the winning proposals will be notified. The deadline for submission of proposals and previous works done is March 15. To submit a proposal, click here.
