Festival Director and founder Richard Sowada said he was very proud of this year’s event.

“We simply can’t stand still,” said Richard. “For 2018, we’re delivering in areas of art and culture that takes Rev right to the very front of the exploration of what a film festival can be.”

“It’s very exciting for us and we hope for audiences.”

Expanding across the city and wider community, Revelation plays a central role not just in the Perth calendar but also nationally and internationally.

Featuring a break-out Revelation Music Days program with a line-up of international, national and local musicians playing venues across the city, a specially curated Webfest, Virtual Reality works that lead from the front and the WA premiere of the controversial Terror Nullius, once again Revelation will entertain and inspire audiences, while Industrial Revelations will feature some of the festival’s guests exploring key aspects of the industry at dedicated panels and workshops.

Revelation Academic meanwhile sees scholars – from academic institutions and independent researchers – delivering papers and exploring cinema and visual culture, in the seventh instalment of this critical platform that remains utterly unique to any Australian film festival.
