Rio de Janeiro International Uranium Film Festival at MAM Rio

Rio de Janeiro International Uranium Film Festival at MAM Rio

The International Uranium Film Festival needs your support - nuclear power industry not.

Climate change threatens humanity. And the atomic industry tells us that more nuclear power is the salvation. But nuclear energy is not a solution to climate change, but only increases the radioactive risks. The International Uranium Film Festival needs support - nuclear power companies not. Help the 10th International Uranium Film Festival to make it a great event.

Since 2011 the International Uranium Film Festival is the world's premier annual film event about nuclear power and all radioactive risks, from uranium mining to nuclear waste, from Hiroshima to Fukushima. Starting in Rio de Janeiro the Uranium Film Festival became a global event highlighting nuclear awareness with festival screenings around the globe from Brazil to Germany, USA, India, Portugal, Jordan and Canada, from Rio to Berlin, Washington DC, New York, Hollywood, Santa Fe, Window Rock, New Delhi, Mumbai, Amman, Quebec and far more than a dozen other cities.

Next year in May 2020, we're celebrating the 10th birthday of the International Uranium Film Festival and we want to bring the best nuclear films and its filmmakers from the last ten years to Rio de Janeiro. Most of the festival films about nuclear energy and its risks, films about Fukushima and Chernobyl have a significant impact on the audience. But the connection with its filmmakers dramatically magnifies the impact of these films.

No matter if you are in favor or against the use of nuclear power or uranium: all people should be informed about the risks. Right now, when the nuclear industry worldwide propagates itself as solution against climate change, radioactive risks and nuclear catastrophes such as Three Mile Island, Chernobyl or Fukushima must not be repressed and forgotten. This is especially important for countries like Brazil, the US or Spain and Greenland, where governments want to build new nuclear power plants or allow new uranium mines.

For that we started our crowdfunding campaign and we kindly ask for your support. Any Euro, Dollar or Real counts. With your donation we are able to bring filmmakers from across the world to our festival and make those important connections between artist and audience. (Indiegogo: )

More than 20 award-winning filmmakers and producers have already agreed to come to Rio to celebrate with us the 10th anniversary of the International Uranium Film Festival. The ten day festival is scheduled for May 21 to 31. As in recent years the Cinematheque of Rio de Janeiro's prestigious Modern Art Museum (MAM) will once again serve as venue. Do not miss it.
