Uranium Film Festival 2018 zum 2. Mal in Window Rock

Window Rock / Rio de Janeiro - Seit 2011 tourt das International Uranium Film Festival rund um den Globus und zeigt Dokumentationen und Spielfilme über die Risiken von Atomkraft und Uran. Im November 2013 war das in der Welt einzigartige Filmfestival zum ersten Mal im Land der Navajo in Window Rock zu gast. Ende 2018 wird das Uranium Film Festival nach Window Rock zurückkehren und neue "atomare"  Filme aus der ganzen Welt im Navajo Nation Museum zeigen. Das Festival findet dort vom 29. November bis zum 1. Dezember statt und erinnert an den legendären Indigenous World Uranium Summit (IWUS), der genau 12 Jahre zuvor am gleichen Ort stattfand.

„It is a great honour for us to have the opportunity to return to Window Rock," says Uranium Film Festival’s director Norbert G. Suchanek. „The question of nuclear power is not only an issue of the navajo nation who suffered for decades because of uranium mining. All people should be informed about the risks of uranium, nuclear weapons and the whole nuclear fuel chain.“

The Uranium Film Festival encourages especially native american and women filmmakers to send their films about uranium mining or any nuclear issue to the festival. The selected films will be shown not only in the Navajo Nation Museum but also in venues in Flagstaff, Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The best productions will receive the Uranium Film Festival´s award in Window Rock.

Partners and supporters of the International Uranium Film Festival in Window Rock and the US Southwest are the New Mexico Social Justice and Equity Institute, the SW Indigenous Uranium Forum, the Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples, the Guild Cinema in ABQ and the Center for Contemporary Arts Cinematheque in Santa Fe.
