Festival Success for Atomic Hope, Duty of Care & Rewild Documentaries!

Posted: March 13

We are incredibly proud to announce that three of our films have been selected for screening at three upcoming festivals: congratulations to all those involved!

Atomic Hope: Inside the Pro-Nuclear Movement (2022)

Directed by Frankie Fenton and produced by Kennedy Films, Atomic Hope has been a hit at festivals around the world, and will now make its Danish debut at CPH:DOX.

After premiering at HotDocs2022, Atomic Hope has been selected by CPH:DOX in their Science section & Rewriting The Future section for their 2023 edition. Following a string of selections in other festivals in Ireland, Spain, Belgium, Estonia & Israel, we’re delighted about this news for director Frankie Fenton and his production team.

“Powerful, convincing.”

– ★★★★☆ – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The documentary – which was filmed over a ten-year period – follows a group of controversial pro-nuclear activists who are in favour of the use of nuclear power to prevent climate change by fossil fuels. 

They argue that their beliefs are based in science and technology, and they challenge the popular beliefs and concerns held by more traditional environmentalists – raising the question, should we stop the mass closure of nuclear power plants and see them as a viable alternative to fossil fuels?

More information on how to attend can be found here! It will be screened on March 18th and March 24th. 

Rewild (2022)

Alexis Breton, Cyprien d’Haese & Thomas Zribi directed this environmental documentary – which was produced by Nova Prod and released in 2022. Rewild will feature in the Festival du Film Vert in Switzerland.

The film follows the idea of ‘rewilding’ – setting aside vast areas of land to let wildlife thrive without human interaction, and focuses in particular on various projects around the world where people have been reintroducing endangered animals and restoring disappeared ecosystems.

Rewild will be having 50 screenings at the environmental festival Festival du Film Vert in Switzerland – from the 4th March to the 5th April.
