The 13th Annual International Uranium Film Festival will come to Chicago for the first time beginning March 28th and going through April 1st.  This inaugural visit to Chicago consisting of 16 films will be hosted by NEIS at 5 locations in the Chicago area during its visit.  All showings are free to the public (except the Music Box event), but due to limited seating, reservations on Event Brite will be required at some sites.

The International Uranium Film Festival is dedicated to films about nuclear power and weapons, nuclear victims, and the risks of radioactivity, from uranium mining to nuclear waste. From Hiroshima, the Manhattan Project, Fukushima and everything in between, where Oppenheimer dared not go, it throws much needed light on all nuclear issues.

The first International Uranium Film Festival was May 2011 in Rio de Janeiro. Today this global event has already been in more than 60 cities around the globe, including Window Rock, Berlin, New York, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Amman, Washington DC, Hollywood, and Albuquerque – and now, for the first but hopefully not last time, Chicago.

At a time when the nuclear industry and its friends in the Biden Administration and Congress are aggressively promoting yet another New Nuclear Age, the public needs to see that the last one was not very kind to many people and the Planet.  We hope to see you at some of these film showings.
