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. 


Uranium Film Festival circuit 2021 is dedicated to Fukushima

2021 marks 10 years since the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011 and the subsequent nuclear disaster at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Coincidentally, the first International Uranium Film Festival (IUFF) also took place in 2011 and became a global cinema fest highlighting the risks of atomic power from uranium mining to nuclear accidents. Therefore the Uranium Film Festival circuit in 2021 is dedicated to the Fukushima meltdown and its ongoing aftermath.

Since its first edition in May 2011, the International Uranium Film Festival (also known as the Atomic Age Cinema Fest) has been recognized around the world as the premier nuclear energy-themed film festival. Until today more than 60 Uranium Film Festivals took place  in more than 40 cities in seven countries like Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Jordan, Portugal and USA with the presence of over 100 filmmakers, producers, actors and actresses.

However, in these unpredictable times of Covid-19 the Uranium Film Festival relies more than ever on the generous support and partnership of those who share our passion for nuclear awareness and believe in the power of cinema. Since 2011 we're transforming the way people see the nuclear world through film and we simply couldn’t do it without your support. 

Thanks for your attention and contribution

Norbert G. Suchanek and Marcia Gomes de Oliveira,
Founder and directors of the Uranium Film Festival
