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.

Berlin/Rio de Janeiro, October 03, 2015:
The International Uranium Film Festival Berlin ended with glamour and stars from the German cinema. Film director Marcus Schwenzel received in Berlin the Uranium Film Festival’s Yellow Oscar 2015 for his movie "Seven Years of Winter". Together on the stage were Casting Director Uwe Bünker from Berlin and famous German actor Roman Knizhka who is one of the leading actors of Marcus Schwenzel´s Chernobyl movie. 
 
"Seven Years of Winter is spectacular, a masterpiece. A fiction that shows the reality, an unthinkable, post-nuclear reality," says Marcia Gomes de Oliveira, co-founder of the Uranium Film Festival and professor at the FAETEC Technical School for Film, TV and Event "Adolpho Bloch" of the State of Rio de Janeiro. And Marcus Schwenzel said: "I am very happy and very proud to be honored with the Uranium Film Festival's Yellow Oscar."

About Seven Years of Winter: A short movie about Chernobyl with starring actors Hannes Jaenicke, Roman Knizhka and the 11 year old actor from Kiev, Sasha Savenkov, tells the story of seven-year-old Andrej scavenging the nuclear wasteland of Chernobyl for discarded documents to trade on the black market by his elder friend Artyom. An excellent film and script along with a truly touching performance from Sasha Savenkov (Andrey) that creates a deeply moving film about family, belonging, and manipulation. Trailer:
