Roger’s movie scoops two AMMAs

Indeed the future of the Ugandan film industry is bright, at least if the success Kina-Ugandas are starting to get is anything to go by.
Several local movies have performed tremendously at international film festivals and awards events.
The latest movie to shine on the international scene is Roger Mugisha’s movie Battle of the Souls.
The movie won in two categories at the Africa Movie Academy Awards held in Nigeria on Saturday.
The movie won the Best Achievement in Sound Effects award and its actor Joel Okuyo Prynce scooped the award of Outstanding Male Actor in a supporting role.
Prynce, who acted as the devil in the movie, was in Nigeria to accept his accolade.
The Academy founded on the best film tradition, is geared towards research, training and propagating film making in Africa. Behind it are film producers, directors, designers, writers, critics and scholars who share a similar belief of developing the African film industry.
AMAA is thus conceptualised as an annual celebration of the brightest and the best in African movie.
