International Uranium Film Festival

Rio de Janeiro, Brésil

20/05/2022 - 30/05/2022

Dates de l'édition 2022 sous réserve.

The aim of the festival is to inform about all sides of nuclear power and the risks of radioactivity. Independent documentaries and movies are the best tool to transport that information. And a festival is the best way
to bring these films to the people!
The Uranium Film Festival creates a neutral space to throw light on all nuclear issues. Societies and people should have the right of choice if they want to follow the nuclear road or not. Nevertheless the Uranium Film Festival is neither a festival in favour of nuclear power nor against it. It is a film festival  about nuclear energy and against forgetting and ignoring. The horror of atomic bombs and uranium weapons and those who suffered from them, and nuclear accidents like Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Goiânia or now Fukushima should never be forgotten - nor repeated.
The anual Uranium Film Festival was founded in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but it is a global festival. With a selection of films it travels around the world. It has been already in dozens of cities in Brazil, Germany, India, Portugal and USA. For example the festival was held in São Paulo, Salvador, Recife, Berlin, Munich, Lisbon, Delhi,
Hyderabad, Mumbai, Ranchi, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Window Rock, Washington DC, New York...

The 10th International Uranium Film Festival Rio de Janeiro remembers the still unsolved nuclear accident in Fukushima 10 years ago and the UN treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons, which has been in force since January of this year. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions It will be the festival’s first online edition with support by the Cinematheque (link is external) of Rio de Janeiro’s prestigious Modern Art Museum (MAM Rio) (link is external).
The festival has selected 34 documentaries and movies by 26 filmmakers from 15 countries. The films will be screened for free online from May 20 to 30 at the MAM Rio platform.
