"We are proud to have the Elektrizitätswerke Schönau (EWS) from Germany as one of our supporters", says Uranium Film Festival's director Márcia Gomes de Oliveira. „We hope this will encourage other socially and environmentally responsible companies and people to follow EWS and to support this important unique film festival too.“
Since 2011, the International Uranium Film Festival shows films from all over the world about the risks of nuclear power and the whole nuclear fuel chain from uranium mining to nuclear waste and nuclear disasters, from Hiroshima to Fukushima. The festival gives independent filmmakers, nuclear power experts and those who suffer from the nuclear industry and uranium mining a global platform.
It takes place annually not only in Rio but also in other countries and cities with a selected film program. For example the Uranium Film Festival has also been held eight times in Berlin, several times in the USA and twice in India. The 11th International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro will be held May 19 to 29, 2022, at Rio's Modern Art Museum (MAM Rio). The next Uranium Film Festival in Berlin is scheduled for October 2022.
The EWS supplies people throughout Germany with green power and eco-gas and works in various ways towards bringing about the energy revolution. The revolutionary EWS-Project started in the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear accident. A handful of committed citizens decided to become active together in their community in the town of Schönau in the German Black Forest region and created a nuclear- and coal-free energy supply belonging to citizens.
The Uranium Film Festival depends on socially and environmentally responsible people, companies and institutions from all over the world. We welcome any donation!
