The emerging film industry in Uganda is known as Ugawood or sometimes Kinauganda by the locals. The 2005 production Feelings Struggle directed by Ashraf Ssemwogerere is credited with being the first Ugawood film. 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. 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.
