France to honour arts icon Mutie

14 June 2014, 10:12

Nairobi - The French Government will next week decorate Peter Mutie with the medal of Chevalier of The Order of Arts and Letters for his services rendered to the improvement of the cultural cooperation between France and Kenya.


Remi Marechaux, the Ambassador of France to Kenya, will confer the honour on Wednesday at the Residence of France.


This decoration is awarded to a devoted actor of culture in Kenya and abroad.


The Embassy cited a number of breakthroughs Mutie reached including the opened the Kenya Film Commission to the international exchanges, to France, notably, through the cooperation agreement signed between the French National Center for Cinema (CNC) and the Kenya Film Commission, in May 2011 during the International Cannes Film Festival.


The memorandum of understanding supports the cooperation between the two countries in the area of film production, and grants a special importance to preservation of film production heritage of both countries.


Mutie has also promoted the teaching on cinema in Kenya by contacting the University of Toulouse and its Superior Audiovisual School to start an ongoing cooperation between the French and Kenyan educational system on cinema.


After his years of dedication to the Kenya Film Commission as its Chief Executive Officer, Mutie is currently the Chairman of the Machakos Entertainment Centre for Film, Music and the Arts (Machawood) which aims at creating a major location for entertainment in Kenya and the continent.


Mutie is also, since 2011, the President of the Africa Public Relations Association, which promotes effective performance of public relations practice in the continent.
