What is the Australia-wide Innovation Festival?
A new Gippsland event this year is the inaugural Wellington Shire Short Film Competition, run by the Briagolong Film Festival in conjunction with BigScreen Travelling Film Festivals. Finalists’ films will be screened Saturday June 10, at 8pm, in Sale at the Wellington Esso BHP Billiton Entertainment Centre.
Also this year, the National Australia Bank in Gippsland announced a three year sponsorship deal for the festival to support innovative local businesses.
“Many of our customers are active participants in the Gippsland Innovation Festival and we recognise that innovation represents a key part of not only their businesses, but also our future in the region,” said Kelvin McDermott NAB’s Regional Executive for Gippsland.
