Revelation commenced its formal life in 1997 in the basement back room of the Greenwich Club , Perth’s legendary jazz venue. The festival was designed to showcase ideas “at point” in contemporary independent film and find a place for them in a conservative cinema and social environment. Amongst the new works lived curated archival programs that highlighted pivotal – often hidden – creative points over the decades.
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.
Over its 18 years it has developed a reputation as Australia’s leading independent film event and continues to actively advocate for Australian screen culture practice in a still conservative exhibition environment.
It maintains an ethical partnership agenda which is not always easy to do in resource and mining based economy, has an open mind and has a strong social justice program at its core.
