Groundbreaking movies about Nuclear Energy need translation
Organized by: Ana Lourdes Silva
EVENT DATE Apr 29, 2014
Art and Awareness: The IUFF - International Uranium Film Festival was founded in 2011 in Santa Teresa, the famous artist quarter in the heart of Rio de Janeiro.
Our goal is to inform the public, from a neutral position, about nuclear power, uranium mining, nuclear weapons and the health effects of radioactivity. The horror of atomic bombs and those who suffered from them, and nuclear accidents like Chernobyl or Fukushima should never be forgotten - nor repeated.
The IUFF inspires discourse about the health and environmental risks of radioactive materials and waste. We seek to educate and activate the public on these issues. Films and other dynamic medias like the web are important tools to bring that information to a diverse international public.
Facts: Since we started the festival the public awareness of new independent documentaries and movies about the nuclear fuel chain and radioactive issues has been growing. The nuclear world has produced over 200,000 metric tons of high-level radioactive waste during the past sixty years. This waste will remain hazardous for 100,000 years.
Education: It is our responsibility to inform societies and future generations about the dangers of radioactivity. We believe that public education and open discussion of these dangers will lead to a more peaceful, healthy future. Filmmaking and the Uranium Film Festival are tools to inform future generations - and to promote a safe, sustainable future without nuclear risks.
International: After premiering in Rio de Janeiro, the Festival travels to other major cities in Brazil and other countries. In past years it has traveled to São Paulo, Recife, Salvador, Fortaleza and to Lisbon and Porto in Portugal, to Berlin in Germany, and to ten major cities in India including New Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai. The legal organizer of the Uranium Film Festival is the non-profit arts and educational organization "Yellow Archives". This charitable organization is registered in Rio de Janeiro and officially recognized by the Brazilian Government. Important Partners of the festival are the Heinrich Boell Foundation Brazil, Rio de Janeiro's Museum of Modern Art MAM-Rio and the Technical State School for TV, Cinema, Tourism and Events - Adolpho Bloch of the Foundation for Education and Science FAETEC and Migrating Media & Productions.

Our challenge is to deliver the translated/ subtitled movies on time for the IUFF 2014 happening on May 2014.
The energy crises the world faces today, makes increasingly important that developing markets, like the Latin American trend-setter Brazil and other portuguese speaking countries in Africa, fully understand all aspects of nuclear energy to be able to take informed decisions.
If we achieve our fundraising goal we will first translate the 2014 Yellow Oscars nominated movies, then the rest of 2014 general selection. If we surpass our fundraising goal we will translate past editions Yellow Oscars winners and then the past nominees.
If we earn the funds but we are unable to translate all the movies for the Rio edition, we will translate the movies for the 2014 Traveling Festival edition that will cross at least 5 other Brazilian capitals and hopefully some African countries until 2015. In case we are not able to get funding, we will have to try again, until we can only overcome the language barrier.
