Tag Archives: Revelation Film Festival


The Revelation Film Festival is the preeminent film event in Perth, Western Australia (WA), and they having wrapped this year’s annual fest, they are now looking ahead to next year (July 3-7, 2024). So if you’re a filmmaker interested in a unique experience reaching an entirely new audience (and film market), submit your features, shorts & docs now!

Growing up in “the bush” outside of Perth, even going to a cinema was a big deal and involved an hour trip each way on the country bus and most of the movies in our theatres were at least 6 months to a year old.  After all these years, I’m so proud of the filmmakers who have emerged from this remote state capital city, thanks in part to respected film schools there and the Revelation Film Festival who support local, indigenous and int’l films and filmmakers. So if you’re an indie filmmaker looking to impact audiences (and get a great vacay, too), this is the one for you.As per the festival’s spokesperson: In looking at the films, we don’t have groups of panels but rather we take a more active and curatorial approach. All titles submitted are viewed by the Festival Director. A shortlist is then made – usually made up of around 30% of the titles submitted in each category and those films are then viewed by the Program Director to ensure that all films selected (invited or through the call for entries) provide a complete and cohesive program.  It’s that kind of love, program care and exposure to large audiences that bring more and more films and the filmmakers themselves to Rev.
