GALA Film Fest

The GALA Film Fest has become a lively and anticipated conference tradition.

Film Fest videos 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. For inspiration, you can look at some of our past Film Fest videos (and winners) here. Rally your team, submit your video, and who knows? You may win a free registration to GALA 2019 - stranger things have happened ...
