1471 REVELATION PERTH INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2017

Revelation Perth International Film Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2017 from 6-19 July

 Curated once again by Jack Sargeant, the Revelation Perth International Film Festival sees a diverse selection of films drawn from across the world.
 
Boasting Revelation's commitment to signature works, independent cinema, genre film, world cinema, and unique breathtaking movies, this year is no exception with a program drawn from Australia, Peru, Canada, France, Slovenia, Ukraine, Japan and all points in between.
 
Featuring award-winning movies, world, international and local premieres, new Australian works and live performances, Revelation is a celebration of the strength of all aspects of screen culture.
 
Expanding across the city and wider community, Revelation plays a central role not just in the Perth calendar but nationally and internationally.  Featuring dedicated programs from the Iranian Film Festival, Irish Film Festival, the Revel-8 Super-8 short film festival and Screenwest, 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.
 
2017 sees the biggest Revelation program to date with Program Director Jack Sargeant calling it a mammoth task. The festival will feature over 200 films, 15 world premieres and 41 Australian premieres.
 
Revelation is acclaimed as Western Australia’s leading international film festival and annual screen culture event and is firmly established as Australia’s filmmakers’ festival. It is dedicated to presenting independent cinema from around the globe in a context that explores film’s great traditions, its contemporary movements and its future directions.
 
Attracting audiences of over 13,000 people annually, Revelation continues to grow and has become the ‘go-to’ event for independent filmmakers, distributors and discerning audiences.
 
The complete program is now online and tickets are now on sale from the Revelation website  and from Luna Palace Cinemas
