Australian Event Awards 2016 Winners Announced

Australian Event Awards 2016 Winners Announced

The first Australian Event Awards Ceremony to take place on the Sunshine Coast kicked off with a bang this week, recognising and celebrating the best events in Australia and achievements in the industry around the world between 1 July 2015 and 30 June 2016.
Among this year’s winners was a balance of Event Awards veterans and first time finalists. Byron Bay Bluesfest won Best Regional Event, Ample Projects won Best Achievement in Design for their work on Be The Light For The Wild, Taronga Zoo for Vivid Sydney 2016, and Imagination took home the gong for Best Technical Achievement for their work on Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience.
It was an honour to see Opera Australia take out the award for the Best Cultural, Arts or Music Event for this year’s Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour: A Production of Turandot. We are proud to be a part of this landmark event, delivering the main stage steel & scaffold infrastructure on the waters of Sydney Harbour at Farm Cove annually since 2013.
After a classy VIP cocktail reception on the lawns, with a firework demonstration from Foti Fireworks, we headed into the beautifully decorated marquee for dinner and the awards ceremony.
Awards Partner, Apples and Pears Entertainment, provided two brilliant acts to entertain attendees. With Sarah Rowan-Dahl creating a stunning artwork through the evening as the show rolled on around her, and Kimberley Heberley’s beautiful voice providing a sweet prelude to the main course. Meanwhile, drumming outfit Junkyard Beats contributed the show-starting bang.

Box Office: Hacksaw Ridge

Box Office: Hacksaw Ridge

Mel Gibson’s WWII drama Hacksaw Ridge has received a staggering 10-minute standing ovation during its world premiere at the 73rd Venice Film Festival.
The movie is based on the true story of US Army medic Desmond Doss, a Seventh-day Adventist who saved the lives of 75 of his comrades while refusing to bear arms under seige at the Battle of Okinawa.
The American-Australian film was filmed mostly in Australia and stars Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn alongside homegrown talent Teresa Palmer, Sam Worthington, Ryan Corr, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Richard Roxburgh.
According to Deadline, the film received a standing ovation – a rarity at Venice – that lasted roughly 10 minutes. Approximately six minutes into the applause, Gibson, Garfield, Palmer and the rest of the cast waded into the crowd to shake hands with the audience.
Gibson’s comeback film is shaping up to be one of the favourites at the prestigious event. It is expected to be a serious contender at the Oscars later this year.

Tri-Point are proud to have been involved with such a great film.
Premiering in a cinema near you soon!
