The Uranium Film Festival is a two-day event showcasing must watch films for anyone interested in learning more about the reality of nuclear warfare.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine earlier this year has brought the dark specter of nuclear war back into the public spotlight. However despite the end of the cold war decades ago, the danger of nuclear war has been ever present since 1945. In recent years we have witnessed nuclear states spending trillions on new weapons and world leaders who threaten to use them.
Many experts believe that the risk of a nuclear war breaking out today is as high or higher than during the cold war.
The Uranium Film Festival was founded in Rio De Janeiro in 2011 to raise public awareness about nuclear dangers. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is working in collaboration with the Uranium Film Festival to bring this event to Norway for the first time in 2022.
