The Revelation Perth International Film Festival
Type: Regular shortfilm festival
Location: Perth, Australia
Start Month: July
Revelation commenced its formal life in 1997 in the basement back room of the Greenwich Club , Perth’s legendary jazz venue. The 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.
A variety of formats accepted. Films must have been produced during the 3 years before the festival.
