Perth International Film Festival cancels opening night

In response to the latest outbreaks of COVID-19, Revelation Perth International Film Festival have cancelled their opening night, and the following day of programming.

In a tragic start to the film festival season, Revelation Perth International Film Festival has been forced to cancel their opening night and first day of programming. This decision comes after the announcement of a 4-day lockdown order across Western Australia, which coincides with both events. 

In the spirit of the festival’s theme of ‘Distant but Connected, the team’ have announced they are looking into virtual options for the cancelled events, and plan to begin broadcasting events from 1 July.
