JUNE AUSTRALIAN REVELATIONS: LAST TRAIN TO FREO

Almost all of our Australian Revelations screenings have sold out so we urge you to get in early with our June title which is a great precursor to the main July Revelation edition.

So - it's with great pleasure we announce the June screening - Last Train to Freo.

Released in 2006 the work came from a stage show penned by local writer Reg Cribb - and for anyone who's spent time on the Midland-Fremantle train line of a number of years ago, this excellent locally made film rings mighty true.

With universally excellent performances and set in real-time, it tells the story of a group of passengers who are thrown together in an almost empty carriage and who along the way confront their own demons and desires.

Last Train to Freo was an exercise in minimalism for me,” says Director Jeremy Sims, “We really pushed our imaginations making it, and I worked with many people I am still working with today. I think Steve's performance is extraordinary, and I still get a kick from watching it.”

Jeremy Sims will personally present the film at Australian Revelations, offering film lovers and local filmmakers the chance to discuss the realities of filmmaking with the Director.

Each Australian Revelations feature screening will be accompanied by a Western Australian made short film, providing opportunities for local filmmakers to have their work seen by new audiences.

Screening: Tues June 30th, 6.30pm.

Where: Perth's Backlot Studios, 21 Simpson Street, West Perth

Revelation would also like to extend its sincere gratitude to Bankwest for supporting Australian Revelations through their community grants scheme.

REV OPENING NIGHT 2015

Our 2015 Opening Night is the excellent new Australian film Last cab to Darwin. Penned by local boy Reg Cribb and local ex-pat Jeremy Sims, the film stars Jacki Weaver, Michael Caton, Ningali Lawford, Mark Coles Smith and Leah Purcell - all turning in outstanding performances.

A uniquely Australian road movie, director Jeremy Sims delivers what will undoubtedly become a classic, based on a script by Reg Cribb and Jeremy Sims  - the film is the product of a Perth dream team whose resumes include 2006’s Last Train To Freo.  

Join Director Jeremy Sims and star Michael Caton for the opening along with a cavalcade of Rev guests for to usual monster evening immediately after the screening.

As an insight in the 2015 program, we're soon to present the strongest year of Australian cinema we've seen for many years.

Tickets for the July 2nd event will be on sale from June 6th - and you have to be there for one of the best and most enjoyable nights on the West Australian cultural calendar.

2015 PROGRAM LAUNCH

We're scheduling like crazy right now and there's many sleepless nights ahead, but we can guarantee you that the program will be ready by June 6th at our program launch to be held at Luna Cinemas.

It's our biggest program yet and it's packed full of special events, a bumper collection of world premieres, our largest program of locally produced works, masterclasses and of course guests from around the world.

Tickets will of course be on sale then and we suggest you get in early given the number of sold out sessions last year and the big ticket items we know are in there.

Either way, we look forward to seeing you for what is unquestionably going to be our biggest year ever!
