Perth International Film Festival
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’.
