What keeps the Super 8 medium going? Sheer AUDACITY and that’s the theme of this year’s Rev- el-8 Super 8 Film Fest.
Back for its third big year, Revel-8 promises to entertain with its unique conversation between Oz’s gurus of small gauge filmmaking and tal- ented music composition students at the West- ern Australian Academy of Performing Arts. This is the festival where filmmakers haven’t seen or heard the films they’ve entered. Revel-8 celebrates the power and beauty of visual filmmaking in the camera. Its part of a fascinating global Super 8 culture which thrives on the unique aesthetic of celluloids smallest gauge which can be a spiritual experience on the big screen at the Astor. But Revel-8 is about music too, as composers transform, energise and alter the experience of the image — all without asking the filmmaker. Join the creative and courageous gurus of Super 8 as they see and hear their films for the very first time, sitting side by side with a cinema audience.
Prizes to be awarded on the night include Best Film, Best Music Soundtrack, Best Super 8 Cinematography and Encouragement Awards.
