HISTORY
Back in 2015 was founded the Paris Art and Movie Awards. In only 3 years, the "PAMA" attracted A-Lit names from Los Angeles and Paris, and screened dozens and dozens of films. The PAMA today is already recognized as the leading independent film festival in Paris.
After the 3rd edition of the Paris Art and Movie Awards took place on the top of the Champs Elysées in Paris, right next to the Arc de Triomphe, the Hollywood Art and Movie Awards was created, to create even more connexions that will allow filmmakers from Los Angeles to enjoy a safe festival event in Paris, and filmmakers from Paris to make the jump to the City of Angels with their film.
