AUGUST AUSTRALIAN REVELATIONS SCREENING - Downriver

It's with enormous pleasure we can announce out August Australian Revelations screening of the international acclaimed feature Downriver.

The film concerns a young ex-con who encounters secrets from the past and danger in the present when he returns to the rural Australian community to discover the truth behind a crime he supposedly committed when he was a child.

Its official selection at the Toronto Film Festival guaranteed a mighty hot place on the international circuit and now it comes to Perth for one screening only.

We're selling out each session of Australian Revelations so if you want to be part of the experience book early!

REVONDEMAND AUGUST TITLES

We've got two new titles August with a ton more to come. Fresh to your browser this month we're going back to 1999 with the wonderfully warm and moving portrait of Geraldine Cox - an unsung Australian hero running an orphanage in Cambodia in My Khmer Heart.

From 2002 we also present one of the most acclaimed and unusual documentaries of the year with Monteith McCollum's unique and deeply textured multi-award winning work Hybrid.

Both amazing films and both we're proud to present.

Also on the highlight list for August for your viewing enjoyment we have a selection of fine documentary works available exclusively on REVonDEMAND:

REVEL 8 SUPER 8 FILM COMPETITION WINNERS ONLINE

We always have a great time with Revel8 and it's such a great idea. 

Get bunch of filmmakers making an in-camera Super 8 film, and a bunch of composers both of whom have never met, get the composers to score the film and bring them together for the first time the night they screen...it's so much fun.

This year's program was really great with some really well made works and great ideas. Take a look at them here.

THREE NEW REV ON DEMAND TITLES FOR JUNE!

We've just cracked the 100 mark in the number of feature film and feature documentary titles available on our very own On Demand platform thanks to the addition of three more titles this month.

They include the great indie feature Monkey Warfare - which was our Opening night film way back in 2007, the lost and forgotten but enormously enjoyable low-budget Aussie horror film The Demonsamongus and from the director of Guerrilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst we bring you the gripping look at the conspiracy around the JFK assassination in Oswald's Ghost.

With REVonDEMAND there's no subscription, there's no harvesting your information, it's not part of a giant international company, but we do try and bring you the best in nearly 20 years of international independent cinema. It's a one of a kind initiative and we believe it to be one of the few things like it anywhere in the world associated with an international film festival.

We're very proud of it actually, but we're more proud of the voice it can bring to the films and filmmakers involved.

For July we'll also be bringing you one or two special sidebars to time with main event!
