Meetings & Events

TIVA-DC meetings -- Our region’s best resource for sharing production knowledge.

A recent TIVA Meeting at Interface Video.

From writing to lighting, animation to digital compression, and all points in between, TIVA meetings have a heritage of being interesting, involving, and a great investment. We continually bring you the region’s top producers, shooters, and graphic artists to present tried and true techniques you can use on your next production.

You can be a part of this exciting endeavor. Send your meeting ideas/wishes to meetings@tivadc.org and we’ll work to put your topic on the schedule.

    For the fourth year straight, TIVA is holding our new/used gear yard sale. In the past, it's been a great opportunity for folks to sell gear; be it production gear, post production gear, or anything related to the film/video/audio industry that TIVA and its supporters would be interested in having in their arsenal of tools.

    For folks who need gear and love good deals, it's a chance to see the gear in person, talk to the owner, and hopefully make some handy purchases!

    During the Yard Sale, we break out the grill and bbq some burgers and dogs, and have drinks to quench your thirst in the hot summer sun. This year, we are planning for air conditioned comfort to make the shopping that much more pleasant!

    Come check our new full service studio partner, THUNDERSHOT STUDIOS for a tour, fellowship with your peers, shop for gear, enjoy a BBQ and hang out with your favorite TIVA staffers.

    C’est Cinémagnifique! 

    The Peer Awards Parties on at the French Embassy

    TIVA-DC will once again serve as the host organization of the 2015 TIVA Peer Awards, the most comprehensive film, video and Internet competition for professionals and media students in the mid-Atlantic region.  The 2015 TIVA PEER Awards will take place within the elegant ballroom and reception lobby at the prestigious Embassy of France on Nov. 14, 2015.  Last year’s 2014 Peer Awards included many outstanding moments: awards of merit to a stellar pool of entrants; the first ever DC Council Recognition Resolution; and the participation of all three DMV Film Offices. This year’s awards gala promises to deliver an unequaled evening of achievement, sophistication and fun!

    This highly anticipated annual awards event recognizes excellence in achievement within the Television, Video and Internet production community and this year’s awards ceremony promises to raise the bar across the board for what is destined to become a memorable evening of celebration, networking, recognition and distinction.  Refining and streamlining some categories and offering the addition of brand new categories that reflect the latest cutting edge horizons of current production activity promises excitement and distinction within the industry and across the entire DMV community. New categories for submission include: NEW MEDIA comprised of Web Series and Interactive Media including for Museums, Exhibits, and Special Applications,

    The elegant atmosphere and unique aesthetic of the Embassy of France promises an evening of sophisticated fun along with an enhanced reception and socializing time that promises the familiar camaraderie and fun of seeing old friends,  meeting new colleagues, and connecting with winners past and present.

    Please scroll down and click "register" on the left to buy tickets to attend the awards.

    The TIVA-DC Peer Awards is a merit-based award judged solely on the individual merits of the entry. This is not a competition, rather an acknowledgment and celebration of exceptional quality work created by professionals and non-professionals in the Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania or Delaware region. This may result in categories receiving multiple awards of the same level as well as some categories without awards.
