The Ugandan film industry shall again be represented by Leilah Nakabira on foreign land as the actress and screenwriter hopes to win at the LIPFF awards where she was nominated in two categories.

Before we know it, Leilah Nakabira will be the most decorated young filmmaker and actress and deservedly so. She has mastered her art and the recognition is swinging her way from all angles.

In September we made you aware of how the Ugandan actress had achieved two nominations in the Kenyan-based Lake International Pan-African Film Festival Awards 2019.

The C.E.O LEPA AFRICA FILMS and Founder of Leilah Nakabira For Charity Foundation shared photos of herself before boarding a flight to Nakuru, Kenya where the awards ceremony will be held from 6th to 9th November.

Nakabira was nominated in the Best Child Performer and Best Actress categories for her role in the movie ‘The Forbidden‘.

I will be representing my country Uganda at the LIPFF – Film Festival where I was nominated for Best Actress award and Best child performer award for my role in the movie The Forbidden. Thank you God for this opportunity, I pray we bring the awards home.
