Cinema Forum Fukushima (CFF) is a non-profit study forum and public screening, it is also a fiscal sponsored project by Fractured Atlas, a NPO which supports artists, arts organizations and their projects. CFF focuses on the issue of Nuclear Energy. CFF showcases about ten films mainly feature-length documentary films, including some short films. During this showcase, CFF facilitates after screening discussion with the audiences on the topic presented by the films. In doing so, we hope to raise awareness of health and environmental risk posed by the nuclear industry, eventually empowering public to denuclearizing our community.
In order to achieve this goal, CFF will screen the films that emphasize these themes:
- Hazardous nature of radioactive substance and radiation, how low-level radiation, especially the internal exposure, damages the children’s health and future generation in a long-term, what the change occurring on human body between natural and artificial radioactive substances are.
- Case study on the severe accidents in the world.
- How public apathy toward nuclear power plants ruin individual lives and an entire community.
- How the nuclear industry including government underestimates the risk of radiation and marginalizes actual health damage from low-level radiation such as constant radioactive leakage from nuclear power plants.
- How the nuclear industry preys on the weak.
- Sustainable energy and how to promote non nuclear energy
