The Hodgman Liberal Government, through Events Tasmania and Screen Tasmania, is proud to support events like the 2015 BOFA Film Festival.
BOFA, which is in its sixth year, is a festival which uses film to inspire positive changes at a personal, local and global level.
BOFA has created the Innovative Tasmania Awards to foster innovation and entrepreneurship in the state.
The inaugural Innovative Tasmania Awards have attracted 32 nominees across five categories. The categories are:
Food and Beverage production:
Science, Technology and Transport:
Sport, Leisure and the Arts:
Politics, Governance and Security:
Community and Environment:
These awards and the nominees are proof that Tasmanian ingenuity comes in many forms, from healthcare to the arts and from shipbuilding to winemaking.
Tasmanians should be proud of all of these nominees who are striving for excellence and innovation and I wish all of them the best of luck on Friday night and congratulations also to Owen Tilbury and his BOFA team on another magnificent Festival.
