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.

The Radioactive Thing - Yellow Oscar Award winning short film from SpainFive Yellow Oscar Awards went to films from France, Spain, Ukraine, USA and Germany/Denmark

Rio de Janeiro, 12/05/2015 - The International Uranium Film Festival was held this year for the first time in Quebec City and Montreal. During nine days, between April 15th to 24th, the festival screened more than 40 documentaries and movies about nuclear power: from uranium mining to nuclear power plants, atomic bombs and atomic waste. The Grand Council of the Crees (Eeyou Istchee) was the major partner for this year’s festival in Canada, which drew some serious star power, with Quebec superstar Karine Vanasse and Hollywood actor/environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. in attendance for the Festival´s opening gala.

“We have seen that the more people learn about uranium and the nuclear chain, and the more we listen to the stories of those who have been affected by this industry, the more we are convinced that the risks brought by uranium are simply unacceptable, both today and for future generations", stated Grand Chief Matthew Coon Come. In addition he personally thanks the festival founder und general director Norbert G. Suchanek for his hard work and creative vision: "We were honoured to host the International Uranium Film Festival in Quebec."
 
The Festival´s jury has now selected five of the in Quebec screened films to receive the Festival´s Yellow Oscar Awards 2015.
