Uganda bans Dutch film for ‘steamy sex scenes’

The film was released in 2010 but was due to be shown in a film festival (INFINITY FILM & TV)

Uganda’s censorship board has denied a Dutch film, ‘The Dinner Club’, a classification rating, banning the film in the country after accusing it of “glorifying homosexuality”, the Embassy of The Netherlands in Uganda has said, the BBC reports

The embassy released on its Facebook page the reasons the Uganda Media Council gave for banning the film – including “deep kissing before kids”, women forming a “Dinner Club which is in reality a sort of brothel”, and “gay men sauntering away drunk”


The Embassy deplores the decision of the Uganda Media Council and it will withdraw from participation in the European Film Festival in Uganda, where the film was to have been shown, this according to the statement.

Homosexuality is a criminal offence in Uganda.

The film was released in 2010 and was due to be shown in a European film festival in Uganda.
