Drawing delegates from around the country The Revelation Perth International Film Festival's Academic Conference is a truly interactive two days of intense discussion and debate on all things cinema

Revelation is Australia's only international film festival to host and encourage academic discussion alongside its screening program and we look forward to taking its discoveries to audiences around the country and world. It represents an important platform in film discussion and analysis in this country.

More information:

Taking place on the first Monday July 9th and Tuesday July 10th 2018, the Revelation Academic Conference draws local, national and international academics to discuss and analyse issues such as:

  • New modes of distribution and exhibition
  • Gender representation
  • Genre
  • Movements in international cinema
  • Independent cinema (narrative and documentary)
  • All aspects of screen culture


It's young, it's passionate, it's political and it's directly connected to the screening program. You don't have to be presenting a paper - or be an academic - to attend but if you're interested in challenge, change, discussion and making people work for their ideas (and money) we suggest you register.

If conferences and networking is also new to you, then you can't find a more supportive environment in which to train. We're all friends and all ideas and opinions are valued and welcomed.
