FIRST WEEKEND REPORT

We had a sensational weekend with quite a number of sell-out houses with quite obviously more to come.

We had guests from around Australia and around the world presenting their films and engaging in a great range of workshops and panel discussions across the weekend with the workshops being free of charge. 

Spend some time in our gallery to get a sense of the energy that surrounded a few of them like Aaron Pedersen's performance workshop, Antarctica: A Year on Ice Q&A and of course our Opening Night.

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.

What the media are saying

We've got all manner of reviews, blogs, comments and posts about the forthcoming event appearing locally, nationally and internationally. If you're new to Rev, we suggest you take a look at what the media are saying about us and particular films to get a sense of what's in store and how we can best satisfy that special itch that you can never seem to scratch.

Of our Academic and industry series, Realtime says: "RevCon places no limits on possible topics for discussion."

Screen Space says of our program "Bold new ventures from the likes of Robin Wright, Nicholas Cage and Tom Hardy mingle seamlessly with the latest in socio-political commentary and underground edginess at Revelation 2014"
