Each year, the Alliance For Community Media Central States Region salutes the best community programming with a regional video contest, the Philo Festival Of Media Arts Video Competition. Submissions are now open for this year’s Philo Awards. Named after Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of the first receiving tube for television transmissions, the Philos recognize the efforts of modern day pioneers who work to promote the use of media in our communities.
Congratulations to all of the winners of Accessvision's annual Volunteer Recognition Awards!
Arts & Culture: Yohei Okuma – “Japanese Culture Show”
Yohei began working with his 4th grade class at Westlake in the fall of 2016 to create a weekly news program. After the school year he took additional classes at AccessVision to become more proficient in video production.
This year marks the 29th year in a row AccessVision volunteers will have braved the cold weather to bring all the sights and sounds of the Annual Battle Creek Christmas Parade to the warmth of the viewer’s living room.
AccessVision will air the parade “live” from in front of its location at 70 West Michigan Avenue on Comcast Cable Channels 17 & 917 and on AT&T U-verse channel 99. In order for AT&T customers to watch the parade, they need to select “channel 99”, click on “Battle Creek Area – AccessVision”, then select “AccessVision 17” and select “OK”.
