This year's event will be held on June 7.

The 2024 Uganda Film Festival nominees came from about 50 films spread across 25 categories.

A total of 307 films were submitted, a record number. Notably, there's a shift in language use, with many films submitted in Ugandan indigenous languages instead of English, a trend not as prominent in previous years.

Three films lead the pack in nominations. Eleanor Nabwiso's "Christmas Together," Nisha Kalema's "Makula" (dealing with human trafficking), and Ibrahim Hammis Mayanja's "Omukululo" (exploring the consequences of hidden truths) are strong contenders in acting, screenplay, and technical categories.

"Makula" tops the list with 12 nominations, including Best Actress for Kalema. Other notable contenders include "Soccer Heart" by Kevin Jones Nabukenya and "Lions of Buganda" by Jerry
