Vibe Films, a burgeoning film production business based in the heart of Uganda’s capital, Kampala, has been making waves since its inception in 2016. Officially registered in 2022, the company’s journey from a mere idea to a thriving enterprise reflects its commitment to telling African stories in a unique and impactful way.
Ahmed Masembe, the CEO and Co-founder of Vibe Films, envisioned a platform that not only entertained but also served as a catalyst for social and cultural change. “I thought of starting to tell African stories in an edutainment way,” Masembe explains, “but also saw several struggling youths who had various talents in Movie Making, acting but with no or little access to fulfilling their potential.”
With this vision in mind, Vibe Films was born. Masembe and his team embarked on a mission to not only entertain and celebrate Ugandan heritage and history but also to incorporate pro-social and cultural elements that inspire both young people and adults to get involved.
Since its inception, Vibe Films has been a driving force in the Ugandan film industry, producing content that resonates with audiences both locally and internationally. Through their innovative approach to storytelling, they have captured the essence of African culture while addressing pressing social issues.
From captivating narratives to thought-provoking documentaries, Vibe Films has established itself as a trailblazer in the realm of African cinema. By providing a platform for aspiring filmmakers and actors, they are not only nurturing talent but also empowering communities to share their stories with the world.
As Vibe Films continues to expand its reach and influence, its impact on Ugandan society cannot be overstated. Through the power of film, they are not only entertaining audiences but also fostering dialogue, promoting understanding, and driving positive change.
With Ahmed Masembe at the helm, Vibe Films is poised to continue its journey of innovation and inspiration, cementing its place as a driving force in the African film industry for years to come.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be exclusivley sharing some of Vibe Films’ productions from the past couple of years, in order to highlight the innovate work that is being produced.
To start off, we’re sharing one of their first short films from 2022, ‘Unfaithful’.
Unfaithful tells the story of Morgan, a devoted husband, who lavishes his wife Sonia with care and support, providing her with everything she needs, including an apartment and assistance with her business.
However, Sonia’s heart belongs to another, and despite Morgan’s deep affection for her, she is drawn to someone else.
As Morgan’s love goes unreciprocated, he faces the heart-wrenching reality of betrayal when Sonia confesses her true feelings to him, shattering his world and leaving him to grapple with the painful aftermath of a love lost.
Enjoy the film, and we look forward to sharing more with you very soon.
