  TIFF is delighted as part of its tribute to the French Film Pioneers, to honor the two great inventors of motion pictures, the Lumiere Brothers, by Showing "Lumiere & Company" along with "A Trip to the Moon" by another French inventor and pioneer, Georges Melies. The invention that millions of people, today, call it movies, films, motion pictures, cinema.... and with it, they cry, laugh, fantasize, enjoy, dream...

The Lumiere Brothers, Louis Jean (5 October 1864, Besancon, France 6 June 1948, Bandol) and Auguste Marie Louis Nicholas (19 October 1862، Besancon, France 10 April 1954، Lyon)، were the creators of the cinematographe, a three-in-one motion picture camera, developer, and projector, and were among the earliest key filmmakers. They were both born in Twin Valley, Besancon, France but brought up in Lyon.

They produced a single device that acted as both camera and projector, the cinematographe which they patented on 13 February 1895. The first footage ever to be shot on the device was shot on 19 March 1895; the film was La sortie des usines Lumiere (literally, The Exit From the Lumiere Factories, or, under its more common English title, Workers Leaving the Lumiere Factory).

The first paying show was on 28 December in Paris at the Grand Cafe in the Boulevard des Capucines.
