Window Rock, AZ, March 15, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Since 2011, the International Uranium Film Festival has traveled around the world showing documentaries and movies about the risks of nuclear power and uranium. November 2013 for the first time in the world, this unique film festival was in Arizona and New Mexico. Now in 2018 the Uranium Film Festival will return and screen new "atomic" documentaries and movies from all over the world.
The International Uranium Film Festival in the US Southwest starts in Window Rock in the Navajo Nation Museum. It is scheduled for November 29th to December 1st and will remember the legendary Indigenous World Uranium Summit (IWUS) that happened exactly 12 years before at the same location. Further film screenings are plannend in Flagstaff, Grants, Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
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 best productions will receive the Uranium Film Festival's award in Window Rock.
"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."
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.
