Revelation Film Festival director Richard Sowada says it’s a terrific collaboration.

“Trevor is proudly West Australian with an international outlook, just like Rev,” said Richard.

“We can’t think of a better person to help spread the word about what we do and what we are all about.

“As an actor he’s of course deeply involved in the screen business, but he also brings a message of the place of the arts in our broader culture.”

Trevor Jamieson says he’s humbled at the opportunity.

“As someone who grew up in the arts industry and spent most of my life in Western Australia, I’ve gained witness to skills of strength and weakness within our state that have always given me experiences to share of stories and places, nationwide and internationally,” Trevor said.

“I’m excited to celebrate the most simple viewpoints that can reveal great strengths within the awareness of our mindset for independent works and allowing for amazing collaboratives between national and international themes to understand the human common aspects of social justice.

“Plus I’m looking forward to being back home again and becoming involved with a lot of well known and emerging artists.”

Revelation Perth International Film Festival will run from 5 – 18 July 2018. Details here.
