Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to this week's Digest! We're getting a late start this week due to the holidays but there's still plenty to catch up on.

Today in 1895, the first commercial film screening occurred at the Grand Cafe in Paris, France. The film by the Lumiere brothers featured a series of clips from every day life in France. Read more here. And with that, let's dive into the digest!

Recognition

As our next Community Digest will come in the new year, I want to take this time to thank all of our Community Ambassadors for all of the amazing work they do. Not only do they handle a majority of the posts that come in to our forums, but they also help instill and reinforce the culture we strive for in our Community. We'd be lost without you! See our ambassadors here.
