Winners of the Inaugural WA Screen Culture Awards

Embracing all screen forms from new, established and emerging screen practices across 18 categories, the inaugural WA Screen Culture Awards, presented by Revelation Perth International Film Festival, was a fitting way to close the 23rd annual film festival at Luna Cinemas on Sunday 13 December.
