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: Films about nuclear energy and radioactivity wanted

Films about nuclear issues wanted!

Filmmakers and Producers from all over the World are invited to send
their preview DVDs until January 31, 2012.

Last May 2011 we organized the First International
Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro (Urânio em Movi[e]mento). The Festival
is about any nuclear issue from Uranium mining to Atomic Bombs and nuclear Waste
and it is about creating awareness. Independent information about the risks of
the whole nuclear fuel chain is an important step for a nuclear-free future. If
people are informed about the nuclear risks, they will not allow nuclear power
plants or uranium mining. Therefore, we screened films from all continents
and we had an audience of about 1000 people, many of them Students and Teachers.

Damacio A. Lopez, USA (Executive director of
the International Depleted Uranium Study Team – IDUST) said about the Uranium
Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro 2011: "In my 25 years as an anti-DU activist
this experience (Uranium Film Festival) has been a highlight in the exposure of
a very serious problem that faces mankind today: The use of radioactive waste as
a military weapon."

The Festival was such a success that
it received invitations from other Brazilian cities and other countries like
Costa Rica, Germany, India, Namibia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Tanzania
and USA. After Rio de Janeiro, we already organized Satellite Uranium Film
Festivals in the Brazilian Capitals São Paulo, Salvador, Recife, Fortaleza,
Natal and João Pessoa. November 2011 and January 2012, we will have now
Satellite-Festivals in Porto and Lisbon in Portugal. And we are now planning the
2nd International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro next May/June 2012,
when there will be also the huge UN Earth Summit (Rio plus 20) in

The Uranium
Film Festival is a project of the NGO Yellow Archives.
Yellow is
the colour of Uranium and for that a symbol for the whole nuclear industry.
Until today, most of the documentaries about uranium and the nuclear risks are
mainly in English, German or French - but not in Portuguese. So the second
advantage of our Uranium Film Festival is to create the so-called Yellow
Archives and to subtitle international films into Portuguese and
Brazilian/Portuguese productions into English. The Yellow Archives is the
first-ever film library in Brazil and Latin America dedicated to films about the
whole nuclear fuel chain and radioactivity. Schools, universities, environmental
groups and other grass root movements will have access to the Yellow

Filmmakers and Producers from all over the World are now invited to
send their preview DVDs until January 31, 2012.
