Katharine "Kat" Kramer's production company, "Films That Change The World," is one of the Atomic Age Cinema Festival sponsors. Kramer will be attending the festival and viewing the documentary: The Man Who Saved The World, and the Film: Final Picture. Kramer is also a Co-Moderator for the Nuclear Power Panel of speakers.  Later in the evening she will be presenting the Golden Spirit Award to German filmmaker Michael Von Hohenberg for his film "Final Picture," which was inspired by the movie "On The Beach." Additionally, Golden Spirit Award will proudly honor "Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World" for the noble contributions to making a positive difference.

Kramer, growing up with a father who advocated for world issues, gave her the gift of awareness and education regarding the impact of nuclear consequences at a young age. Kramer's Father, Stanley Kramer, brought awareness to the nuclear effects in 1959 with the film On The Beach. Seeing her father's passion inspired Kramer to continue bringing awareness to world issues. Kramer, at the 5th installment of  "Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World," presented the documentary Fallout.  At the North American Premiere of Fallout Lily Tomlin hosted the 5th Anniversary Premiere and Think-Tank event.  Fallout featured Dr. Helen Caldicott, Karen  Sharpe-Kramer, Donna Anderson, and Heather Mayfield; among other entertainers. Fallout is an Australian documentary by filmmaker Lawrence Johnston who exemplified how Stanley Kramer made the film On The Beach in Melbourne, Australia. At the Atomic Age Cinema Fest, on April 27th, the fiction drama of  Final Picture will be one of the films shown, and supported by "Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World." This film discusses the dangers of nuclear issues, and was inspired by Kramer's Fathers film On The Beach.

Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World" and "Golden Spirit Awards" will be honoring Michael von Hohenberg for his Critically Acclaimed Film Final Picture. Hohenberg gave Kramer some insight, with a written quote, on where the inspiration for the film came from: "On The Beach had a great influence on Final Picture. In the 3rd grade of school I had a teacher who showed us films about nuclear war, and one of the  films was On The Beach. It was shocking for me to see what nuclear war means to mankind.  So as a filmmaker I thought it's a good idea to make a new shocking film about it. In Final Picture the main story is about the radiation, which cause the people to die, and this is similar to your fathers film.  Also there is a little tribute to On the Beach in my film: The Government offers the people to commit suicide with pills.  It's so fantastic to meet you now, because it closes the circle."

Incidents of atomic bombs, uranium weapons, and nuclear accidents should never be forgotten so they will not be repeated.  Therefore the International Uranium Film Festival was created and has been successfully active since 2010.  This festival was developed by the non-profit arts and cultural organization "Yellow Archives" based in Rio De Janeiro. Every documentary and film shown at this festival covers some aspect of nuclear power and the risks of radioactivity. Yellow Archives is a project against forgetting tragic and lethal incidents such as: Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima. The International Uranium Festival has already toured cities in Brazil, Germany, India, Portugal, and Canada; as well as cities in the U.S.: New York, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Washington DC.  Currently the Los Angeles festival is active and it is titled: Atomic Age Cinema Fest.

Kramer would like to encourage everyone to come out to the festival to view all the films. If you would like to attend the film Final Picture or the documentary The Man Who Saved the World feel free to contact: Kat Kramer's Films That Change The World.
