The Ngalabi Short Film Festival which is now in its 3rd edition returns this Friday. It will take place from 1st – 3rd February at the Goethe-Zentrum rooftop terrace on Bukoto Street in Kamwokya.

Since its premiere in 2017, the main focus of the festival has been to promote short films as an art form in Sub-Saharan Africa. The festival will showcase a wide variety of genres and styles that the medium has to offer in a bid to demonstrate short films’ viability as a storytelling tool in the region.

This year’s edition will boast a rich catalogue of films from all over the African continent; with notable award-winners like: ‘Kyenvu’ by Kemiyondo Coutinho and ‘Maraya Ni’ by Patricia Olwoch from Uganda; and ‘Aya’ by Moufida Fedhila from Tunisia, which collected several awards for Best Short in 2018.

There will also be a showcase of European films mainly from Germany, the United Kingdom and Sweden. The films will tackle a variety of issues like immigration, climate change, and living in the diaspora among others.

The festival will also be conducting a free three-day workshop for emerging African filmmakers. The workshop will be facilitated by renown film producer and head of the film department of London Film School: Femi Kolade. The workshop will offer the participants access to advanced film-making tools and techniques, while serving as a hub within which they can interface and collaborate with one another.

The festival is organised by Goethe-Zentrum Kampala in partnership with Maisha Film Lab.

Chaka Demus & Pliers

By Our Reporter

Jamaican reggae duo, Chaka Demus & Pliers are not coming to Uganda, we can confirm. Popular for songs like “Tease Me” and “Murder She Wrote” among others, the Jamaican stars had been rumored to be the headliners for a Valentine’s Day show to be held at Kololo Independence Grounds. As it turns out, it is just that, a rumour.

Salavdo who is hosting the Africa Laughs show at the Kololo Independence Grounds on Valentine’s Day debunked the rumours while speaking to media on Tuesday.

“Chaka Demus & Pliers coming to my show were simply that — rumours,”  Salvado said. “This is why you have not see any artwork or official communication from us about them.”

Salvado, whose Africa Laughs show is returning for the 5th edition, further revealed that the show will instead feature Tanzanian bongo star Harmonize.

“Harmonize is going to bring the Valentines feeling to the show,” he noted.

The Africa Laughs show will also be graced by top comedians from across the continent like Nigeria’s Kenny Blaq, Kenya’s Eric Omondi, Congo’s Eddie Kadi and Zimbabwe’s Alfred Kainga. They will crack up comedy lovers alongside Uganda’s very own like Daniel Omara, Prince Emma, Ronnie Mc Vex, Agnes Akite and Madrat & Chiko among others.

The show is slated for 14th February this year.
