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.

8 Nominees selected for Rio de Janeiro Uranium Film Festival Awards 2012

Rio de Janeiro, RJ, (May, 02, 2012)

– The 2nd International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro has nominated eight films representing eight countries for its Award, the Yellow Oscar, in three categories: Best Short, Best Feature and Best Animation. The Festival starts 6 days after the next Earth Summit (Rio plus 20) in the Cinema of the famous Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro called MAM. Between June 28th until July 13th, the Uranium Film Festival will screen over 50 films from all continents about atomic bombs, nuclear energy, uranium mining and radioactive dangers. The film festival will culminate in the awards ceremony on Saturday, July 14th at the same location.

What nominated Filmmakers and Directors say:

Bill Keisling, the director of `Not For Public Release: a Nuclear Incident in Lock Haven´ said: “Thank you for the good news that my documentary Not For Public Release has been nominated for a Yellow Oscar Award. The nuclear incident in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, and its many victims, have received no publicity whatsoever from the corporate media in Pennsylvania and the United States. A Yellow Oscar Award from the Uranium Film Festival will not only shine light on my film, it will help to illuminate the plight of the many nuclear victims in the United States, most of whom are usually completely ignored by the government and media here. Thanks again.”

“I was very proud and happy that Coffee Break was accepted to the festival. After being nominated for the Yellow Oscar 2012 I am even prouder and happier”, said Yellow Oscar-Nominee Marko Kattilakoski from Sweden. “Coffee Break was a story I had to tell. The team I gathered believed in the idea and we made the film with minimal budget and a lot of heart.”“Because of responses like these from Bill or Marko, we are working hard for our uranium film festival to make it an important global event”, comments the Uranium Film Festival’s General Director and Founder Norbert G. Suchanek.

See here the festival programme: 


The International Uranium Film Festival is organized by the Yellow Archives, a charitable cultural and educational organization based in Rio de Janeiro. The Festival wants to stimulate the production of independent documentaries, movies and animated films about any nuclear issue. By awarding the Yellow Oscar, the Festival intends to support independent "nuclear" filmmakers to continue with their work and to give them more visibility. The Uranium Film Festival is based in Brazil, but it is a global project. After the events in Rio de Janeiro, the festival is travelling to other cities and countries.

The Uranium Film Festival need your support. The Festival relies on the generosity of people and of culturally and socially conscious companies and Institutions. Please, make a difference and join our family of supporters.
