Rev­e­la­tion Perth In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val be­gan in 1997 in the base­ment of Perth’s leg­endary jazz venue the Green­wich Club with one per­son, two pro­jec­tors and 12 films. To­day, it in­cludes over 120 con­tem­po­rary in­de­pen­dent films pre­sented at cine­mas, gal­leries, cafés and bars across Perth. From 5 to 18 July, vis­i­tors can en­joy Aus­tralian and world pre­miere films of all gen­res along with art ex­hi­bi­tions, in­dus­try dis­cus­sions, live per­for­mances, mas­ter­classes and more. The fes­ti­val sees over 500 works sub­mit­ted for se­lec­tion from lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional film­mak­ers, with strong ex­per­i­men­tal and doc­u­men­tary rep­re­sen­ta­tions.

A non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, ‘Rev­e­la­tion’ main­tains an eth­i­cal part­ner­ship agenda and has a strong so­cial jus­tice pro­gram. It uses film as a back­drop for wider con­ver­sa­tion about ‘cin­ema, ideas, pol­i­tics, per­son­al­ity, his­tory, ac­cess and eq­uity’.
