Director, Screenwriter, Education



My name is Jamal Musenze. I’m an independent African filmmaker. My film making works convey most on artistic, cultural and social issues within African cultural perspective.
I started the journey of film making in 2004 after spending a period of time while practicing creative writing and photojournalism as a freelancer.
I have been in the film making world while undertaking independent projects in my film art Studio as well as getting involved in other independent filmmakers' productions- working on various film sets as a Director.
In my higher education; I went to film school and studied film making- Where I majored in Directing and Screenwriting- Producing and Directing Documentaries.
Throughout the past 5 years I have maintained a high level of career achievements while making films for positive social change in form of video-art and managed to carry out a number of community voluntary training activities in different regions of Uganda by helping young people in giving them basic skills about film making and learning how to project their voices through using a few available resources i.e. “Shooting a film with a Smartphone”
Above all, my career achievements are demonstrated while attending local and international filmmakers' labs and working on notable international sets for feature films like “Queen of Katwe” Uganda/South Africa and “Sara’s Notebook”. Uganda/Spain.
