Fes­ti­val win a pos­i­tive for re­gion

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

Cine­festOZ struck gold on Novem­ber 10, when it won the Fes­ti­vals and Events cat­e­gory at the 2018 Perth Air­port WA Tourism Awards, pre­sented by Tourism Coun­cil WA.

Cine­festOZ chair­woman He­len Sherv­ing­ton said the win showed the im­por­tance of cul­tural tourism in WA and the value of com- mu­nity-led not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions in pro­vid­ing eco­nomic stim­u­lus, jobs and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment.

“This is recog­ni­tion of the on­go­ing sup­port of the fes­ti­val by lo­cal gov­ern­ments, re­gional busi­nesses and the many ded­i­cated vol­un­teers who are the heart of the fes­ti­val,” she said.
