The emerging film industry in Uganda is known as Ugawood[1] or sometimes Kinauganda by the locals.[2] The 2005 production Feelings Struggle directed by Ashraf Ssemwogerere is credited with being the first Ugawood film.[3] This steadily growing film industry has been stated by many as so derived from the famous Hollywood, and the same manner as Nollywood and Bollywood.[4][5] In a story ran in a local newspaper in Uganda about the naming of the industry, filmmakers Kuddzu Isaac, Matt Bish and Usama Mukwaya were quoted stating that Ugawood would be the most appropriate for representation.
