We Are The Best in East Africa

Welcome to our esteemed media school, where your passion seamlessly transforms into practical prowess. In collaboration with eminent industry professionals, we provide an immersive and career-focused learning experience at the forefront of innovation.
At our institution in Kampala, Uganda, we pride ourselves on delivering professional-level training in diverse filmmaking disciplines such as Directing, Producing, and Cinematography. Our curriculum extends beyond the creative realms to include intensive screenwriting and international film business classes. This holistic approach ensures that our students are equipped not only with artistic skills but also with a comprehensive understanding of the global film industry.


Career education is essential for Proline Film Academy's local students, as decisions during secondary education profoundly impact their long-term professional journeys. Secondary education, aimed at workforce preparation, relies on career education to provide vital skills, knowledge, and motivation for chosen career paths. Guidance from tutors and qualified graduates enhances informed decision-making, fostering heightened engagement and motivation. This focused approach ensures Proline Film Academy students are thoroughly prepared to pursue their desired careers and successfully transition from education to the professional world.

Proline Film Academy stands as a distinguished private independent film school, singularly dedicated to industry training.
It is imperative to underscore that our institutional framework deviates significantly from the conventional fee structures employed by other higher education institutions in Uganda.

Our commitment to industry-focused training is reflected not only in our curriculum but also in the financial approach we adopt. Proline Film Academy does not adhere to the standardized fee structures prevalent in traditional higher education establishments. Instead, we have meticulously designed a fee framework that aligns with the specialized nature of our film education, ensuring that our students receive unparalleled industry-centric training without the constraints imposed by conventional educational fee models.

By charting an independent course in our fee structure, we affirm our dedication to providing a unique and tailored educational experience that directly addresses the dynamic demands of the filmmaking industry. This approach reinforces our commitment to delivering a standard of education that is both exceptional and distinct within the context of film studies in Uganda.

Our flexible study programs are meticulously designed based on the American model of higher education, affording students the autonomy to tailor their academic journey within specified parameters. This customization is facilitated by the ability to choose courses, subject to certain limitations, guided by program requirements, prior academic pursuits, current interests, and future aspirations.
Each program is delineated by distinct "Program Requirements," which must be satisfactorily fulfilled by the culmination of the academic tenure. Graduation eligibility hinges on the completion of a stipulated number of courses or the attainment of a minimum credit point threshold in each category outlined by these Program Requirements.

The medium of instruction for all courses is exclusively English, and students are expected to possess a requisite level of proficiency in the language at the commencement of their studies. Detailed information regarding language proficiency prerequisites is available in the Admissions Catalog. Typically, non-native English speakers who have undergone prior education in English or have received advanced English instruction in previous academic pursuits tend to excel, provided they exhibit a sufficient level of confidence in the language. It is noteworthy that, due to the inherently multicultural environment, native English speakers constitute a relatively modest proportion of our student body.

For non-Ugandan applicants seeking enrollment at our institution, kindly note that we are unable to issue a confirmation of acceptance for studies until the complete payment of course fees has been received. Proline Film Academy collaborates fully with Uganda's immigration authorities to monitor and regulate non-Ugandan citizens entering the country for educational purposes. This collaboration involves the disclosure of pertinent information about individual students, including their status, mode of study, attendance, and contact details.
