NEW DELHI: The annual Revelation Perth International Film Festival opened with the breathtaking sci-fi film Under The Skin featuring Scarlett Johansson. Special guests of the festival included Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo and Australian actor Aaron Pedersen (Mystery Road, Water Rats, City Homicide) alongside national and international filmmakers, musicians, screen artists, academics and distributors.
Revelation has established itself as an international film festival, making it a fertile ground for independent filmmakers, distributors and discerning audiences.
"Rev has come a long way over the years" said festival founder and director Richard Sowada at the opening, adding that "After the huge amount of work that has been put in over time, it is enormously gratifying to see the event cement its place as the key annual screen culture event in WA."

Revelation is supported by the Australian and west Australian governments through ScreenWest, TourismWA and Screen Australia. The Festival will come to an end on 13 July at the Luna Cinema in Leederville, Perth, Western Australia.
