For the second year in a row (2015 - 2016), I have been honored to be the Host & MC of the "Television, Internet and Video Association (TIVA-dc) PEER Awards Ceremony. Each year we celebrate and honor talented colleagues for their excellence in achievement in "Media Content Creation" at the Embassy of France. www.TIVA-dc
The Embassy of France was such a fitting location given that France is the "birthplace" of Cinema. The French "Lumière brothers," the inventors and pioneer manufacturers of photographic equipment who devised an early motion-picture camera and projector called the Cinématographe (“cinema” is derived from this name). Oct. 19, 1862.
