For 2019 we're again partnering with our long-term friends the City of Vincent in a unique filmmaking initiative - the City of Vincent Film Project.

This initiative provides three filmmakers a $5,000 grant to produce a non-fiction film set in the City of Vincent about an aspect of the City or the people that populate it. 

Rev will mentor the recipients through the production process all the way to delivery and will ensure you maximise your cash for maximum big-screen result.

Successful applicants will commence production in January, and the three completed films will screen as part of the 2019 Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July. In an added bonus for filmmakers, their works be available to international audiences through REVonDEMAND – Revelation’s own on-demand platform.

The 2018 entries were really fantastic with other screenings and festival selections happening for the lucky recipients after their premiere with Rev.

The aims of the Film Project are to:

  • Produce three short documentaries which will be screened at the 2019 Revelation Film Festival
  • Provide the City of Vincent with an ongoing record of the City, its residents and their stories
  • Provide early career filmmakers with the opportunity to make a short documentary film that demonstrates their filmmaking talents and provides a useful step into the screen industry

It's a great opportunity for filmmakers and all types and we've got $5,000 to successful applicants so take a look at the guidelines and get those creative juices flowing!

Take a look at the Guidelines here!  

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2019 grant:

  • Daniel Njegich and Daniel Pitcher with "Persia’s Pantry"
  • Gabby Ho and Jake Blackburn with "Kick Like a Girl"
  • Jenny Crabb and Louise Bertoncini with "The Last”



The Beeman 

The buzz around local Beeman, Carl Maxwell, isn’t for nothing - he’s the best in the business - and that’s because he can communicate with the local honeybee population. The Beeman follows one man’s crusade to save the honeybees, one hive at a time.

Quality Time

QUALITY TIME is an exploration into the art of neon bending, taking us on a 'neon tour of Perth', showcasing just how prevalent and beautiful these signs really are. This short documentary illustrates the incredibly involved process of neon bending and the relationship between Ben and his mentor. Creating something of quality takes time and neon bending is no exception. 

Producer Rachael Karotkin, Director Matt Sav 

Ghosts Of Vincent 

An expository-participatory documentary that looks at historical people and venues within the area of the City of Vincent. The film investigates the legend of ‘Kanga’ the ghost who haunts the newly renovated Leederville hotel, but also focuses on other venues and locations of interest in the Vincent area.
