The International Uranium Film Festival celebrates its tenth anniversary from 21 to 31 May 2020. This in Rio de Janeiro at the renowned Museum of Modern Art (MAM Rio). The festival will show 30 films from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Spain, the USA and Australia.

Rio de Janeiro, 22 February 2020

In the past ten years, the International Uranium Film Festival has shown more than 200 films about radioactive hazards – from Hiroshima to Fukushima – in Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Munich, Passau, Düsseldorf, New York, New Delhi and more than 30 other cities around the globe.

The International Uranium Film Festival

All dates of the Uranium Film Festivals:

  • Brasil, Rio de Janeiro: 21 to 31 May 2020
  • Germany, Düsseldorf: 7 March 2020
  • Portugal, Ferrel : 13 to 14 March 2020
  • Spain, Almería: 18 to 19 March 2020
  • Germany, Berlin: 15 to 18 October 2020

Almeria is known as one of the global centers of solar energy research. The coastal town of Ferrel, in turn, was named “Capital of Resistance to Nuclear Power” by the Portuguese Parliament in 2019. As early as 1976, the inhabitants of Ferrel had already prevented the construction of Portugal’s first nuclear power plant, which ultimately led the Iberian state to abandon its nuclear energy programme altogether.

Next autumn the Film Festival will take place from 15th to 18th October 2020 in Berlin at the Kino in der Kulturbrauerei and the Zeiss-Grossplanetarium in Prenzlauer Berg together with our partners ICBUW, IALANA, IPPNW and our patron MdB Klaus Mindrup.

Mission of the Festival

Nuclear dangers and disasters such as Chernobyl or Fukushima must not be forgotten. This is the mission of the Festival, founded in 2010.
