International Uranium Film Festival to conclude its Indian journey in Mumbai

NEW DELHI: The International Uranium Film Festival is opening in Mumbai on 11 February after having traveled to several other parts of the country.

Many Indian and foreign critically acclaimed, international award-winning documentaries films will be screened at the two-day festival.


The festival is dedicated to films about Uranium and the possible dangers it poses to the environment and the survival of humanity from both its military and peaceful uses. The festival includes documentary and fiction films on issues like Uranium mining, nuclear power plants, atomic bombs, nuclear waste, radioactive risks, nuclear medicine, Hiroshima, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. Waste from nuclear power plants remains radioactive for more than 100,000 years.

The films screened raise questions about how coming generations will protect themselves from this deathly waste. The festival will stimulate discussions and encourage the production of new documentaries, movies and animated films about the nuclear or radioactive issue.

The international festival was inaugurated in New Delhi on 4 January and has made its way to Mumbai from cities like Shillong, Ranchi, Manipal, Hyderabad, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai and Thrissur.

The Mumbai edition of the festival is being presented by the 7 Islands Film Festival, sponsored by Yusuf Meherally Centre, Shrividya Sansthan and Bhawan?s Cultural Centre, and supported by NGOs Janhit Seva Samiti, Konkan Bachao Samiti, Konkan Vinashkari Prakalp Virodhi Samiti, Muktiyaan Loksanskritik Sanghatana and other anti-nuclear activists in the city.

The International Uranium Film Festival was first held in Rio de Janeiro in May 2011 and then travelled to Portugal, Germany and would move to New York after the Indian edition.

?The festival stimulates discussions about the nuclear question and stimulates the production of new documentaries, movies and animated films about any nuclear or radioactive issue. In addition, the Uranium Film Festival creates a neutral space to throw light on all nuclear issues. Societies and peoples have the right of choice if they want to follow the nuclear road or not,? said Norbert G. Suchanek, International festival director.
