The Revelation Perth International Film Festival (also known as Rev) consistently strives to contribute to the development of an engaged community based on principles of social justice, individuality, cultural awareness and equality.

Revelation seeks to deliver to the film industry and the cultural environment alternative perspectives and approaches, global awareness and critical viewpoints.

Revelation is a unique mix of stylish and contemporary features, short, animated, documentary and experimental works drawn directly from the international film festivals and independent screen scenes. Revelation also takes great pride in showcasing West Australian talent through an annual program of short films at Westralia Day, an annual competition called City of Vincent to support the creation of documentaries in the City of Vincent, and on our streaming service, REVStream, we have the largest selection for films made in Western Australia, able to be streamed from anywhere at any time.

In addition, we also now include a major VR, AR and games conference and expo – XR:WA – allowing for even greater exposure across an enormous catchment of business, education and training, art and entertainment, research and academia and architecture and design. It’s unique to Australia and a great compliment to WA’s major winter arts event.

Annually, we celebrate WA’s media industry with our annual WA Screen Culture Awards. This is a sensational evening that we proudly present as an end-of-year celebration of the screen industry, acknowledging the past year’s outstanding innovation, independent spirit and contributions in various categories of the industry. 

We have a year-round program of free community events, from workshops to competitions to moving image art projections and installations, free family films every school holiday and of course, our July tent-pole festival event.

We acknowledge the immense contribution of our long-term partners and welcome a bunch of new friends to our Rev community.

Ethical Partnership

From its inception and for more than 25-years, Revelation has adopted an ethical partnership agenda.

Over the years, Revelation has received significant criticism from government and other sectors in its resistance in seeking funds from fossil-fuel based industries and others that pose a threat to the environment, social equity and respect for cultural traditions. Where we have seen many other events of significant standing take funds on offer, Revelation has refused significant funding approaches from organisations that engage in questionable financial lending practices and have divisions engaged in the manufacture of weapons systems and weapons of war.

We take our social responsibilities seriously and we believe this is seen in every creative, organisational and business aspect of the event. If you do too, we’d love to have you on board!

Advertise With Rev

The Revelation Perth International Film Festival presents advertisers with many opportunities to reach a large, captive audience of professional, socially aware, urban tastemakers. Advertising opportunities are now available through print, cinema and social media platforms, during the festival and throughout the year.

During The Pandemic...

In 2020, we commissioned six short works in collaboration with a range of partners which in turn created more than 50 screen industry and arts sector jobs in a COVID devastated industry – as well as delivering three major festival and celebratory events.

In 2021 we had four film commissions in productions, XR:WA, an event called What Crew Do All Day, the WA Screen Culture Awards, and a brand new website for our streaming service called REVStream where we also added more than 100 made-in-WA films to be streamed from anywhere.  

In 2022 we launched the Revelation Future Fund to raise $100,000 for the REV Community Fund, our youth Initiative; and REV Production Fund, to support the screen industry.
