Revelation commenced its formal life in 1997 in the basement back room of the Greenwich Club , Perth’s legendary jazz venue. 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 13 days.
Revelation maintains its focus on signature driven works and embraces audiences of all ages, tastes and backgrounds. Like the films it presents, the event maintains a vitality and enthusiasm for the industry quite unlike any other film festival in the country. It continues to actively advocate for Australian screen culture practice in a still conservative exhibition environment.
Revelation is about cinema, ideas, politics, personality, history, access and equity.
