A few days ago, Patriq Nkakalukanyi blasted the film fraternity and authority owners over poor pay, claiming that actors do not get enough of what they work for.
From this, the film fraternity perceived it as directed at the government, directors, and producers.
The Uganda Film Producers Association in Uganda has received this with bias. To them, they feel they have done enough to help the industry.
Mutebi Andrew Elvis, the association president says he does not agree with Patriq’s speech if it was directed to producers too.
“I do not agree with him on the side of the producers. I think we have done something to help. And for the producers, we have held trainings, engaged stakeholders, and funded many projects.” He said.
Elvis noted that the only guild to blame us is the Actor’s guild which has not built itself enough to shake other bodies. He also called upon govern to pull up its stockings to develop the industry.
