Revelation Academic Conference – Call for Papers



Submit abstracts here by the end of April 2018

Drawing delegates from around the country Revelation Academic is a truly interactive two days of intense discussion and debate on all things cinema. We’ll be posting them online shortly.

Revelation is Australia’s only international film festival to host and encourage academic discussion alongside its screening program and we look forward to taking its discoveries to audiences around the country and world. It represents an important platform in film discussion and analysis in this country.

Taking place on the first Monday July 9th and Tuesday July 10th 2018, the Revelation Academic Conference draws local, national and international academics to discuss and analyse issues such as:

  • New modes of distribution and exhibition
  • Gender representation
  • Genre
  • Movements in international cinema
  • Independent cinema (narrative and documentary)
  • All aspects of screen culture

Registrations are $150 and include a 6 film festival mini-pass. If you’re interested in the Academic side of the industry, we strongly urge you to attend and work with us in developing a critical and collaborative industry across all its moving parts.

It’s young, it’s passionate, it’s political and it’s directly connected to the screening program. You don’t have to be presenting a paper – or be an academic – to attend but if you’re interested in challenge, change, discussion and making people work for their ideas (and money) we suggest you register.

If conferences and networking is also new to you, then you can’t find a more supportive environment in which to train. We’re all friends and all ideas and opinions are valued and welcomed.

Conference attendees receive a delicious lunch at Guzman Y Gomez Mexican Taqueria, festival tickets and an industry soiree.

Abstracts (no more than 200 words please) and proposals for panels (no more than 300 words) should be submitted here by the end of April 2018.
