However for the full Oscar nomination of the movie, it has to be widely watched by natives (in this case Ugandans).
Under the hashtag #TakeKonyMovieTotheOscars , Ugandans are embarking onto a campaign to see to it that the film is widely watched.
With attendance and positive reviews being crucial part of the selection process, the film’s screening is already on first in Ugandan Cinemas, from September 20 -26 September 2019, at Century Cinemax, Acacia Mall, Kisementi in Kampala.
