The aim of the International Uranium Film Festival is to inform about all sides of nuclear power and the risks of radioactivity. Independent documentaries and movies are the best tool to transport that information. And a festival is the best way to bring these films to the people! The Uranium Film Festival creates a neutral space to throw light on all nuclear issues. Societies and people should have the right of choice if they want to follow the nuclear road or not. Nevertheless the Uranium Film Festival is neither a festival in favour of nuclear power nor against it. It is a film festival about nuclear energy and against forgetting and ignoring. The horror of atomic bombs and uranium weapons and those who suffered from them, and nuclear accidents like Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Goiânia or now Fukushima should never be forgotten - nor repeated.
"History teaches man, that history teaches nothing", said Mahatma Gandhi. But "those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it", warns Spanish-American philosopher George Santayana.
