Uranium Film Festival in USA 2024

Invitation to all people, NGOs, communities and companies concerned about nuclear power, nuclear arms and uranium weapons in the US.

The International Uranium Film Festival (IUFF) plans to return to the United States of America in March/April of 2024 for an extended tour across the country. At each stop, it will show a selection of movies and documentaries curated for that area of the country about the use of nuclear power and atomic weapons, stimulating the discussion on these vital topics for the future of humanity. See here the film list.

Why now? The world is at war in the Ukraine, with threats of nuclear weapons use. The risk of the use nuclear weapons is big as never before since the U.S. A-Bomb attacks on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. U.S has announced it will be shipping depleted uranium weapons to the Ukraine to be used in the battle field. In the U.S new uranium mines are jeopardizing nature and communities with a legacy of radioactive waste. And political leaders of both leading parties together with U.S billionaires support untested, unbuilt new nuclear power plants as solution to combat climate change.

More and more people are being influenced by nuclear industry public relations campaigns to accept and support nuclear energy without understanding the toll it takes on people and the environment. According a latest poll already a majority of Americans (57%) say they favor more nuclear power plants to generate electricity in the country, up from 43% who said this in 2020. That is the environment we face when the IUFF returns to the United States of America for an extended across the country. We will be showing important, eye-opening films about the risks of nuclear industry and nuclear or uranium weapons. Our aim is to campaign for a world without nukes and uranium mining risks and to foster understanding to support the people, local groups and communities to continue with their struggle.

For 13 years, the IUFF has presented cutting edge films on nuclear issues in nine countries around the world, including Germany, Brazil, India, Canada, the United States, Portugal, Jordan, Denmark and Norway. The IUFF-Team invites all people, NGOs, communities and companies concerned about this threat to the future of people and the planet to join us. Nuclear is no solution to the issues of climate change; it is a danger for present and future generations, and we have films to address all aspects of the problem. In respect for the Native American Peoples, who are suffering most by the consequences of uranium mining and nuclear testing, the IUFF intends to start its 2024 tour in Window Rock, the capital of the Navajo (Diné) Nation. From there, the two festival directors will travel by car with the film selections through the Southwest and across America, screening the films at as many cities and venues as possible.

In each selected stop we can hold a one or two day festival, screening several films, followed by discussions or Q & A with the audience. Films will be curated to address local concerns as well as overarching problems. We are looking for organizations and NGOs to join with us, and have made it easy for you to join us. Our goal is to help you raise consciousness and support for your local issues and organizations. The festival welcomes any donation to make this festival tour happen.
