The Export Award of TV France International rewards the French television programs best sold around the world.

 

This Award highlights the economic and cultural impact of exported television programs, and the role of the French companies in their international distribution.

 

Each year, the Awards are distributed in three different categories: animation, documentaire, fiction.


WASTE : THE NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE  win, this year, the award of French television documentary best sold around the world by ARTE France. 

Despite claims from France's nuclear industry that 97% of spent nuclear fuel is recycled, filmmaker Eric Guéret and producer Laure Noualhat reveal the shocking truth about the waste from France's 58 nuclear reactors (which provide 80% of the country's electricity). What they discovered seriously questions whether nuclear power can ever be considered safe and clean. Enlightening and lucid, WASTE is a gripping investigation into the political, scientific and economic issues of nuclear power that also explodes many commonly repeated myths.
