GALA Film Fest

Second Annual GALA Film Fest

Back by popular demand is the GALA Film Fest. We'll watch short videos from around the globe and get to know GALA members and conference participants in a new way. Films will showcase employees at work or at play and give us a fun and entertaining look inside industry companies. It's a unique opportunity to see a different side of your colleagues and partners. Last year's winner was TSG Global (now Zinacle). You can see their submission below. Think you can do better? Submit your video by 17 February to participate.
