Revelation Perth International Film Festival

6 July 2017 - 19 July 2017

Revelation commenced in 1997 in the basement back room of the Greenwich Club, Perth’s legendary jazz venue.

The Revelation Perth International Film Festival was designed to showcase ideas “at point” in contemporary independent film and find a place for them in a conservative cinema and social environment. Amongst the new works lived curated archival programs that highlighted pivotal – often hidden – creative points over the decades.

All were presented on very beautiful, very analogue 16mm from the back of the room. No projection room, no digital sound. Experimental idea, 1 person, 2, projectors and 12 films.

Today, the event includes over 120 international films presented at cinemas, galleries, cafes and bars across Perth. It attracts 12,000 patrons and 50 national and international guests over 10 days.

Revelation also includes a unique Academic component (introduced in 2012), industry discussion sessions, live performances, masterclasses, visual art exhibitions and other hybrid activity generated by the event or independent curators. Revelation always welcomes independently curated or initiated programs and ideas and actively embraces creative professional development and mentoring opportunities.
