Actor and director Phillip Luswata has asked the government to construct more video halls that are improved enough to promote the Ugandan film industry.
Talking to journalists, the legendary filmmaker advised that the construction of enough improved video halls would help filmmakers screen their movies and improve their work and earnings.
“We do not have enough Cinema Halls in the country, that’s why our fellow filmmakers are finding trouble screening their movies. I advise the government to put up cinema halls around the country so that every filmmaker can screen his or her movies and also get enough money from it.” He said.
He also advised the Ugandan media to give priority to Ugandan movies to let the local market expand and flourish.
“The media gives more time to foreign content and neglects our own content. If they would focus on our content and let the locals know our movies and stars, it would expand our local market.” He said.
