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.

About the festival

The challenge of the Uranium Film Festival is to bring important films about the nuclear question to the big screen, to stimulate the production of new nuclear films and to stimulate the public discussion about use and risks of nuclear power. The horror of atomic bombs and those who suffered from them, and nuclear accidents like Chernobyl or Fukushima should never be forgotten - nor repeated. "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it (George Santayana)." The legal organizer of the International Uranium Film Festival is the non-profit art and cultural organization “Arquivo Amarelo“ (Yellow Archives), based in Rio de Janeiro and registered as Brazilian charity. The festival depends on individual donors and sponsors. Since 2011 it is held every year in Rio de Janeiro. In addition the festival travels with a selection of its nuclear films to other countries and cities. The festival has been already for example in New York City, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Window Rock, in New Delhi and Mumbai, in Lisbon, in Quebec and Montreal, in Munich, Passau and 3 times in Berlin. Now it is planned to bring the festival next for the first time Los Angeles in March 2016.
