Uranium Film Festival

The International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro is dedicated to all films (movies, documentaries, animated films, image films, art, fiction and non-fiction) about any nuclear issue: uranium mining, nuclear power plants, nuclear accidents, atomic bombs, nuclear waste, radioactive risks: From Hiroshima to Fukushima. It is an annual and global film festival with travelling festivals in other countries and cities.

The best and most important films of the year receive the festival Award or a Special Recognition. The Uranium Film Festival Award is a piece of art created by Brazilian waste-material-artist Getúlio Damado, who lives and works in the famous artist quarter Santa Teresa in Rio de Janeiro. Getúlio uses waste material that he finds in the streets of Santa Teresa and old, broken watches to remember the first atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima. Watches in Hiroshima stopped exactly at 8:15 in the morning when the A-bomb exploded on August 6th, 1945. 




Next year, May 2020, we're celebrating the 10th birthday of the International Uranium Film Festival(link is external)and we want to bring the best nuclear films and its filmmakers from the last ten years together with new productions to Rio de Janeiro.

„We founded the International Uranium Film Festival in 2010 and published our first Call for Entry a few months before the Fukushima nuclear disaster happened“, remembers festival director Norbert G. Suchanek. „Very surprisingly one of the first productions we received was the extraordinary short film Atomic Bombs On The Planet Earth(link is external)by Peter Greenaway.“

The 10th International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro is scheduled for May 21 to 31, 2020. As in recent years the Cinematheque of Rio de Janeiro's prestigious Modern Art Museum (MAM) will once again serve as festival venue. More than 20 awarded filmmakers and producers have already agreed to come to Rio. 

You are invited!
