This month Perth Yelpers were
lucky enough to be treated to an Australian premiere film screening by
Revelation Perth International Film Festival. The Festival wanted to give
Yelpers a sneak peak exclusive before the Festival officially
begins on July 4th.
100 Yelpers gathered in the lobby at Cinema Paradiso in Northbridge last night, snacking on Yelpcorn and
flicking through their copies of the Revelation Perth International Film Festival program fresh off the press.
It’s the sixteenth Revelation Perth International Film Festival
and the amount of incredible films they single-handedly bring to Perth every
year is unbelievably impressive. For
Revelation, films are a backdrop to a wider conversation. Revelation commenced
its formal life in 1997 in the basement back room of the Greenwich Club,
Perth's legendary jazz venue. The festival was designed to showcase ideas
"at point" in contemporary independent film and find a place for them
in a conservative cinema and social environment. Today, the event includes 100+
international films presented at cinemas, galleries, cafes and bars across
Perth. It attracts 10,000 patrons over 10 days. This year Australia's most
unique, world class, and fastest growing annual film event will take place from
the 4th till the 14th of July.
the movie we were lucky enough to hear Steph from Revelation talk about the
highlights of the 2013 program, Yelpers took notes! The lights dimmed and Gimme
Me The Loot flashed
onto the big screen. Set in New York City, the film’s storyline
followed rival graffiti gangs in the Bronx. What follows is an urban adventure
that mixes lost sneakers, a heist, a necklace and spray paint. It's summer in
the city, and graffiti and revenge are in the air in this comedy. A massive thank you to Suzanne,
Rebecca, Steph, Tif and everyone else at Revelation who made the night
The Yelpers loved the film and can’t wait for the Film Festival to
launch officially next week. Yelpers, be sure you get your tickets before they sell out. Thanks
also to Tony, Anna and everyone Cinema Paradiso for hosting the event.
you at the next one and SYOY until then!
