Traveling Uranium Film Festival in India- start from New Delhi on 4th Jan 2013 #mustshare


 

The Traveling  International Uranium Film Festival  is going to be inaugurated  in New Delhi  on January 4th  in Siri Fort auditorium no. 3 and will be on  road  to  major Indian cities  like  Shillong , Ranchi, Hyderabad,  Mumbai, Pune, Chennai and  finally end its journey as part of VIBGYOR International film festival , Thrissur ( Kerala )  in February, 2013.  The festival will offer wide range of animation videos, short films, documentaries and even feature films from  all over the world.  International Uranium  Film Festival was  first held in Rio (Brazil) and then travelled to cities in Portugal,  Berlin (Germany )  and  would move to  New York  after the Indian edition.

Green energy vs. Nuclear energy is today the most engaging contemporary debate in India. In this crucial period, there is a need to move the debate further and we feel that  art and culture is the best medium to reach a large audience. Today when India  and other  developing countries need energy to meet the needs of the people ,  establishments   are ambitious to go to any  limit to achieve their goal . As  down south,  our fisherman brother and sisters have been raising  concerns  and anxious about clean environment ,  unfortunately instead of addressing their concerns, they  are being   labeled as anti-national and anti-development. We need to just stop and ponder. Shouldn’t we learn from experiences of the communities of the past to take new decision? asks National award winning  documentary filmmaker Shriprakash, Festival director of the India edition.

“ Independent information is the base for independent decisions. The festival stimulates the discussion about the nuclear question and stimulates the production of new documentaries, movies and animated films about any nuclear or radioactive issue. In addition Uranium Film            Festival creates a neutral space to throw light on all nuclear issues .Societies and peoples have the right of choice if they want to follow the nuclear road or not” says Mr. Norbert,  international festival director

 

“  All the local organizers  are working  hard on the last minute work related to this event and  we are  excited for the response of the people towards this festival “   adds  shriprakash
