The International Uranium Film Festival (IUFF) was founded in 2010 and is dedicated to exploring a wide range of topics related to the nuclear fuel chain including mining, nuclear waste, nuclear war, nuclear accidents and social activism related to nuclear issues. The IUFF has been held around the world (e.g. Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, New Delhi, Montreal, New York, Washington DC, Sante Fe, Los Angelos). This year, the IUFF will take place in Vancouver with Cineworks as its host from 8 to 12 April 2024.
Plutonium & Silver - The Atomic Photographers Guild / Imaging The Nuclear Condition
April 8 - 12, 2024 at the Cineworks Studio
Established in 1987, the Atomic Photographers Guild is an international collective of photographers dedicated to making visible all facets of the nuclear age. Members of the Guild continue to variously engage the ethical, ecological, historical, and scientific dimensions of both the civilian and militaristic applications of nuclear technology through exhibitions, publications, and bi-monthly online seminars. Past members have included the world’s first two atomic photographers, Berlyn Brixner and Yoshito Matsushige, as well as the first photographer to document the Chernobyl disaster, Igor Kostin. “Plutonium & Silver” presents a selection of images from Guild members produced since 1945, from Brixner to our 2024 inductees.
Cineworks would like to thank the Canada Council for the Arts for a grant through the Media Arts Equipment Acquisition Fund. The grant allowed us to make investments in sound, lighting, analog, and film processing, and will allow our artists to continue making independent non-commercial films. We are grateful to the Canada Council for the Arts for their ongoing investment in the artistic community, filmmakers, and non-profit organisations. This grant strengthens our equipment infrastructure and builds capacity for independent filmmakers to experiment with the moving image. Check out the new equipment!
