The Annual Movie Video & Screen Awards took place at the ICC on Sat 29th October 2016. The event marked 10 years of celebrating the achievements of actors of colour in the UK, and started at the Park Regis Birmingham with a champagne reception sponsored by the hotel where the celebrities and VIPs mingled.

A fleet of luxury vehicles, provided by LSH Central Mercedes of Birmingham, chauffeured the VIP guests to the ICC. Once at the ICC the Red Carpet reception was abuzz with adorning fans and well-wishers who came to see their favourite stars honoured. On entering the hall, guests were met with a spectacular view of the Union Black flag embedded with the MVISA logo.

Tables were exquisitely decorated and trimmed with gold and diamond bottles of champagne, provided by Bottega.  Guests were treated to a delicious Michelin style three course meal.

The Awards commenced with a spectacular opening - a celebration of colour, song and dance with over 50 artists in flamboyant carnival costumes. The rest of the night progressed with awards going to the nation’s favourite actors and programmes.  Don Warrington MBE received a lifetime achievement award for his legendary work over the years.  Also receiving an achievement award was Hollywood actor Nonso Anozie for his accomplishments and contribution to the industry.  Stellar performances were received from Chyna Whyne, Zara Zykes, Lurine Cato and Wayne Marshall. The audience got into the party vibe with Donae’o and Omar was the man of the night with a Neo soul version of his classic ‘Nothing Like This’. The night ended with the legendary MVISA After Party which saw over 500 people in attendance at the Park Regis Birmingham as revellers partied to the break of dawn - there ‘ain’t no party like an MVISA party’. Our 10th year show was the biggest and best so far, and a great way to celebrate 10 years of the Movie Video & Screen Awards.
