Revelation Perth International Film Festival is proud to announce that Ben Young and Emma Booth have agreed to join the Revelation team as ambassadors.
After taking audiences by storm with the harrowing yet incredibly impressive feature film Hounds of Love, writer and director Ben Young and actress Emma Booth will again pool their talents to promote the Western Australian film industry on an international stage. As ambassadors to the Revelation Perth International Film Festival, Ben and Emma join recently appointed ambassador Trevor Jamieson to lend their profiles and passion to promote the festival regarded by media, industry and audiences alike as one of the most individual and innovative screen culture events in the country.
Revelation Film Festival director Richard Sowada says it’s a great privilege for Revelation to be associated with screen artists such as Emma, Ben and Trevor. “Our aim is to develop the most collaborative, critical and positive film industry and broader community in WA and it’s a real pleasure to have such potent and diverse voices from the state help us do that on the local, national and international stage,” said Richard.
Emma Booth says she was honoured to be invited to be a part of Revelation.“I got my start in Perth, and it makes me very happy to continue to being a part of the Western Australian film industry,” Emma said.
“We have a depth of talent in WA, and I am excited to be part of an international platform from here in Perth.”
Currently working on the post production of his film Extinction in Los Angeles, Ben Young was also humbled by the opportunity.“Revelation was the first film festival that I ever attended,” said Ben. “I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of it.”

The engagement of Ben Young, Emma Booth and Trevor Jamieson will assist to boost this drive.Revelation is proudly supported by the Australian and West Australian governments through Screenwest and Screen Australia.
