The 2018 program features a diverse range of productions, including feature films, documentaries, shorts, VR productions and experimental pieces from both international and local filmmakers.
We’ve picked out a few events below featuring films from both established and emerging WA filmmakers.
WA Filmmakers at Rev
Get Your Shorts On!
Get Your Shorts On! is back with a twist.
Rev has put together an exciting selection of short films and webisodes in a nod to WA’s talented emerging filmmakers. They’ve also included the City of Vincent Film Project titles that have been produced this year to amplify the line-up.
Life In Pictures
The Life In Pictures competition asked filmmakers to develop and shoot a film of up to two minutes looking at perspectives on ageing and is designed to raise and enhance awareness of the rewards and challenges of ageing.
Join us for a special screening of the short films and presentation of awards. There is more than $20,000 in cash and prizes for the lucky winners in the following categories.

ROCKABUL | Feature Documentary
Producer: Brooke Silcox | Director: Travis Beard
The local Producer of last year’s Rev smash Meal Tickets Brooke Silcox comes back to the rock and roll table with this great look at Afghanistan’s only heavy metal band and the risky endeavour of playing this illegal music in this fractured place.
BUGS | Feature Narrative
Producer: Elizabeta Moxey | Director: Jack Moxey
An incredible debut feature that heralds a genuine talent, BUGS follows a group of teenagers at high school as they plan their weekend and jostle for position in the complex hierarchy of teenage social networks.
Meanwhile, in nearby bushland, lies the corpse of Amanda. But really, no one seems to care.
REV 2018 is dedicated to Felix Burrows, REV’s former national and international logistics manager who was lost in a tragic accident earlier in the year.
