The REVelation Independent Film Festival, which will begin on [ March 6th ] and close up on [ March 9th, 2001 ] , has been called “the most significant of Australia’s myriad of new film events” amongst other praise-filled things, and the 2001 event will focus specifically on documentaries, as the REV Fest joins forces with Australian International Documentary Conference. Documentary submissions are now being accepted through the [ official REVelation website ] , and all formats and lengths are welcomed.
The Festival’s scheduled line-up already includes several noteworthy entries. Andrew Dalgaard’s “The Other Hollywood” is perhaps the most well-rounded and balanced of the recent explosion of porno documentaries, and it examines the San Fernando Valley’s $8 billion dollar industry through interviews with jaded stars and sleazy businessmen alike. Also on the bill is Jem Cohen’s “Benjamin Smoke,” a masterful look at the insular life of a misfit Atlanta native who shifts roles from drag queen to junkie to musician. Cohen is best-known for the Fugazi bio-doc “Instrument,” which followed the indie icon band over the course of eight years.
Submission information for the REVelation Independent Film Festival, as well as a schedule of events and the latest news, can be found at [ the Festival website. ]
