EVENT A film festival about the nuclear fuel chain

The International Uranium Film Festival will be held on February 2 and 3 at Suchitra Film Society, Banashankari, between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. The fest is dedicated to films about the whole nuclear fuel chain and radioactivity: Uranium mining, nuclear power plants, atomic bombs, nuclear waste, radioactive risks, nuclear medicine, Hiroshima, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukushima. From Einstein to Fukushima, say the organisers.

The risks of nuclear power, is important for decision making today and in future. And films are the best way to bring information to the people, they add. There will be documentaries and movies about nuclear issues “that never reached the mass media”. The fest gives these films and filmmakers an international audience and media attention. And governments in Italy and Germany have decided to phase-out nuclear power, while in Brazil and India they are investing in new nuclear power plants. The festival will also stimulate the discussion about the nuclear question and stimulates the production of new documentaries, movies and animated films about any nuclear or radioactive issue.
