Event Description : The Travelling Uranium Film Festival. 
The International Uranium Film Festival is dedicated to most spectacular and vibrant films on the issue of nuclear fuel cycle: Uranium mining, nuclear power plants, atomic bombs, nuclear waste, radioactive risks, nuclear medicine. From Einstein to Fukushima.
The task of the Uranium Film Festival is to bring people closer to the issue through the art of cinema. Nuclear waste is dangerous for more than 100 000 years. The important question is information. These best films from across the globe will provide a complete worldview and give us an all-rounded perspective for further thought on the nuclear fuel cycle.  For that it is important to maintain the knowledge, the wisdom. And the best mediums to transport information are films, movies, and documentaries. The Film Festival is an effective tool to bring the information to the global public.
The fest will screen feature, short and animation films on the entire spectrum of the nuclear debate — destructive and constructive — from bombs and radioactive wastes to medicine and mining for clean energy. Independent information about nuclear risks also is important for independent decision-making. Some Governments like in Italy or Germany decided to phase-out nuclear power. The festival stimulates the discussion about the nuclear question and stimulates the production of new documentaries, movies and animated films about any nuclear or radioactive issue. The best and most important productions receive our award  "Yellow Oscar".
After Rio in Brazil, stopovers have included Portugal and Germany before India. For this, films are the best medium, which explains the concept of the globally travelling festival. In India, the film fest will stop in seven different cities.
Uranium Film Festival creates a neutral space to throw light on all nuclear issues and gives the "nuclear" Filmmakers support to continue work and make the greatest impact for humanity's most important issue.
