File this under: shit that will make your day.
If you’re like me and every year that the Revelation Film Festival comes out, you sit down and play ‘kill your darlings’ and are forced into the cruel and harsh world of deciding what films will unfortunately have to be missed as there are so many superb high quality films showing. Pair this alongside the fact that not only will you miss a great feature length film, but also the kick ass short film that’s screened with that film, and you’re missing out on some great great cinema.
So, with some great excitement this morning, I opened my email and found an announcement for REVonDemand – a new (as the name suggests) on demand service where some of the previous Revelation Film Festival films will be available. Here’s the spiel from the website:
Want to experience the contemporary history of independent film seen through close to 20 years of Rev? It’s right here – with many titles exclusive internationally to this site. All have screened in the Rev program at some point from year 1 and we can’t wait to share them with you.
We’ll be adding new titles and curated sidebars all the time so subscribe to our newsletter for monthly updates – or better still, become a Rev member for a free film every month. We hope you enjoy the offer – we do.
I can already see a few films from this years festival that I missed are available – Asphalt Watchers, Do I Sound Gay? – and previous festivals films as well. Any avenue that allows people to gain access to the greatly underrated and underseen Assisted Living and Of Dolls and Murder is a huge tick in my book.
Now to start building my wishlist of films that have screened that I’ve been dying to see…
