COUCHED FILM FESTIVAL Announced

Revelation Film Festival hasn’t spent the COVID lockdown twiddling its thumbs and eating Tim Tams and instead is planning both an online event in July and a physical festival later this year.

Couched will run online via Eventive from 9-19 July and will present a selection of features and documentaries from across the world, including a number of premieres.

“We exist to show films, and that’s something we will continue to do. Most films will be available Australia wide for the duration of the fest and several will be made available internationally , ” says Jack Sargeant, Program Director.

“This gives us an opportunity to showcase movies across the world, and give people a small taste of what we do.”

This state of the art platform offers tailored viewing experiences and Couched will feature live panels, talks, presentations and short films. In fact, as close to a full festival experience as possible.

Revelation has been working in the online space for some time says Festival Director Richard Sowada.

“We’ve had REVonDEMAND, our online streaming service of 200+ films for five years so we’ve been leading in that space for a fair while now.”

“Fortunately that experience and reputation has allowed us to dive deeply into the contemporary international film scene and surface with a program of 25+ new and stellar international feature, documentaries and shorts presented on a platform that delivers a first class audience experience.”

Films will be available for rent for a 24 hour period through the fest, with titles available regionally, nationally and, we are proud to say, even internationally.

Passes are on sale now via the Eventive platform and the full program will be released later this month.

Revelation is proudly supported by the Australian and West Australian governments through ScreenwestLotterywest and Screen Australia.
