The quality and variety of the film proposed, the cordial atmosphere punctuated with lots of passionate discussions in between the movies and the cosy venue made this experience unprecedented and unforgettable.


The European movies have presented a real portrait of contemporary Europe, confronted with its challenges, the weight of its traditions and the responsibilities of its achievements, whereas the African productions broke many preconceived ideas about the many different ways of life and traditions in the continent.


The organisation of the festival, jointly carried out by the Delegation of the European Union to Uganda, the Embassies and Cultural Institutes of the EU Member States in Kampala, Maisha Films Lab and Garage Films, was a an Euro-African joint-venture.


Specific space has also been dedicated to youth films, through special morning screenings attended by Ugandan school children, and to multi-awarded Euro-African co-productions, co-financed by the European Union (through the EU-ACP Culture+ Programme) and never been shown before in Uganda.
