In collaboration with the Dept of Local Government and Communities and ScreenWest, we're proud to launch the inaugural Life in Pictures filmmaking competition. Designed to initiate discussion and understanding about ageing in the community, there's $20,000 in cash and prizes on offer to filmmakers over 3 categories - under 17, 18-59 and 60+.
Entries are now open but email here if you want more info.
One of our favourite events every year is the Revel8 Super 8 filmmaking competition. The challenge? Filmmakers shoot a 3minute super 8 film in camera, no editing. They pass that film to composers at the WA Academy of Performing Arts (who they don't know) to compose a score. They meet only on the evening of the screenings for a gala celebration of the most analogue of film formats.
So much fun to be had!
One of Rev's most unique features is Revelation Academic - a two day platform dedicated to the discussion and analysis of all things film presented in association with Murdoch University.
Film lovers, academics, filmmakers or just interested film lovers are encouraged to attend making it a vibrant and supportive environment from which to build presentation skill, explore new directions in film criticism and meet like-minded film types.
Take a journey through nearly two decades of independent cinema with REVonDEMAND. There's more than 250 titles on show available that have been included in Rev since 1997 - many only available internationally here.
Many of the titles are free (incl all the shorts) and for May we're partnering with DocPlay in presenting 6 new titles for your viewing pleasure. If you love music you can't miss the special story of The Doors with When You're Strange. If you're up for something a like more quirky you can't go past Do I Sound Gay? and Louis Theroux: My Scientology Movie. If heavy-hitting social justice is your thing then you'll be right at home with the multi-award winning films The Hunting Ground and Joshua Oppenheimer's The Look of Silence. On the left you'll see our featured May short Emo (The Musical) whose feature version is in cinemas now!
Viewing is not subscription based, we don't harvest any of your information and you don't need to sign up.
