JAN australian REVELATIONS SCREENING: THE BABADOOK - SOLD OUT!

After the sell-out house for Mad Max last month, we're overjoyed to announce our third installment - The Babadook - is also sold out. 

Gaining great international acclaim, The Babadook has made numbers of 2014 top ten lists including that of great horror/action director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) who said "I've never seen a more terrifying film than The Babadook. It will scare the hell out of you as it did me."

So, after receiving a limited run in Australia we're proud to bring it back this low-budget marvel for this special screening at the most excellent Backlot Studio on the wide screen with the best sound in town and the comfiest seats.

Tickets are unfortunately no longer available..

CALL FOR ENTRIES NOW OPEN

If you're wanting to get your film to us nice and early, you can do so via our Vimeo online submission process, through WithoutaBox or by sending us a screener. For Vimeo submissions, it's a mighty simple Hi-Def and very direct way to get your work to us.

Fill out your entry form online, send us the link and we're as good as watching your film! This is our recommended way of submitting your work. 

As a word of advice, this time of the year is perfect to send us through films. We've got lots of headspace - which won't last long - a clean slate and are looking for stylistic, thematic and creative trends that will define the festival. 

Our Withoutabox submission portal and our hard copy screener submission are also available.. 

As a personal aside, timing is everything in terms of entering film festivals. Giving your work time to breathe is of real value - it defines the festival. 

Believe us...sending your film early isn't like being the first person at the party. Your film may be the marker that we judge all the others by. 

Don't be bashful - there is no fear or favour.

There's no age limit. There's no format limit (shoot on your phone if you like) - there are no limits. What we want is great ideas and they can come from the most surprising of places.

For each category (Feature, Documentary, Short, Animation, Experimental) we have a very cool hand picked panel of recognised active practitioners assessing works - Revelation is a true filmmakers festival unlike any in the country.

FILM FESTIVAL DIRECTORS & PROGRAMMERS DESCEND

Rev is more than a film festival. It is a Union. It's never been just a screening program but has from the start been a point of advocacy for screen culture locally and nationally and a platform for filmmakers and audiences to look toward the future of distribution, exhibition and production. 

This year we're shaking at the knees to announce some of the country's most influential, opinionated and interesting festival directors and programmers are heading to Perth to hold a closed door summit but also open things out to all comers to discuss the greatest revolution in cinema since the introduction of sound. in cinema

We're honoured to have in Perth

This gathering is made for filmmakers, programmers and screen culture organisations and the community to know who, how, when, why and if in the new screen cultural world. If you're a film programmer and would like to participate, please email us here - we'd love to have you part of the discussion.

All participants will be able to be buttonholed for individual discussion but will at various times be part of group discussion and combat. 

This is the most influential group of screen culture practitioners to ever visit WA. It's now up to you.

If you want one on one appointments with these guests, email us and we'll set it up.
