Revelation Perth International Film Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2017 from 6-19 July

 Curated once again by Jack Sargeant, the Revelation Perth International Film Festival sees a diverse selection of films drawn from across the world.
Boasting Revelation's commitment to signature works, independent cinema, genre film, world cinema, and unique breathtaking movies, this year is no exception with a program drawn from Australia, Peru, Canada, France, Slovenia, Ukraine, Japan and all points in between.
Featuring award-winning movies, world, international and local premieres, new Australian works and live performances, Revelation is a celebration of the strength of all aspects of screen culture.
Expanding across the city and wider community, Revelation plays a central role not just in the Perth calendar but nationally and internationally.  Featuring dedicated programs from the Iranian Film Festival, Irish Film Festival, the Revel-8 Super-8 short film festival and Screenwest, once again Revelation will entertain and inspire audiences, while Industrial Revelations will feature some of the festival's guests exploring key aspects of the industry at dedicated panels and workshops.
2017 sees the biggest Revelation program to date with Program Director Jack Sargeant calling it a mammoth task. The festival will feature over 200 films, 15 world premieres and 41 Australian premieres.
Revelation is acclaimed as Western Australia’s leading international film festival and annual screen culture event and is firmly established as Australia’s filmmakers’ festival. It is dedicated to presenting independent cinema from around the globe in a context that explores film’s great traditions, its contemporary movements and its future directions.
Attracting audiences of over 13,000 people annually, Revelation continues to grow and has become the ‘go-to’ event for independent filmmakers, distributors and discerning audiences.

1188 Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival 2017

More than just Noir, the Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival returns to Cinema Paradiso from July 20 to Aug 2.
The Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival (SCA17) is pleased to announce a  specially curated program of films and events allowing audiences to delve into the iconic style of Nordic cinema from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Finland.

2017 Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival highlights include:

Norway’s official selection at the 2017 Academy Awards, THE KING'S CHOICE based on extraordinary true events,  set during a pivotal moment in World War II. Highly acclaimed Norwegian director, author and screenwriter, Sara Johnsen brings us ROSEMARI, a story about a young couple's unrestrained love, an eccentric ex-boxer with a taste for erotica, and a mother covering up her life's biggest secret. From Norway, HANDLE WITH CARE by Arild Andresen is a delicate father and son journey.   From child prodigy to chess genius, MAGNUS is a lively documentary that explores how chess virtuoso Magnus Carlsen, the 26-year-old Norwegian, rose to become the World Chess Champion. 
Get ready for the latest instalment of Denmark's smash-hit Nordic noir series A CONSPIRACY OF FAITH, described by the Los Angeles Times as “the darkest and most gripping screen adaptation of the Jussi Adler-Olsen novels to date”. Shot entirely on location in Copenhagen, IN THE BLOOD follows a group of young men through a warm, sunny summer at a defining moment in their lives.  A part of the tenth-grade curriculum at Danish high schools, ONE-TWO-THREE GO! is this year’s winner of the Public Prize at the Robert Awards (the Danish Oscars) - young love is put to the test in unimaginable circumstances in this intimate, coming-of-age story.  Director and script writer Charlotte Sieling returns with THE MAN starring Jakob Oftebro and Søren Malling; a world-famous artist is suddenly forced to confront his past when the son he never knew, who is a renowned graffiti artist, shows up at his studio.
FIPRESCI prize winner TOM OF FINLAND,a biographical drama the Finnish homoerotic artist and hugely influential figure in gay culture, whose work is showcased in prestigious galleries, including MOMA in New York.
The winner of 26 international awards HEARTSTONE is an emotionally driven, beautifully crafted film that follows the lives of a group of youths as they explore sexuality and maturity over a summer in a small Icelandic village.   Another tender coming-of-age story is Finnish drama LITTLE WING. Shot in a realist style, the story centres on the resourceful Varpu as she struggles between fitting in with her friends and her family.  
The full-line up of films and tickets will be released mid-June, stay tuned to this page for updates.
