At Mont. Blanc International Movie Fest – Paris, you are sure to be inspired by the transformative power of stories while fostering incredible connections in an atmosphere of spontaneity fueled by great films, shared experiences and scenic beauty.
Paris' monument-lined boulevards, museums, classical bistros, and boutiques are enhanced by a new wave of multimedia galleries, creative wine bars, design shops, and tech start-ups. Paris pleases you wherever you go, long after you have left, and Paris is indeed a feast for the senses.
We give talented directors, producers, actors, and creative teams the positive exposure they deserve. It discovers and honors the achievements of filmmakers who produce high-quality entertainment and new media. Attracting both powerhouse industry veterans as well as talented new filmmakers, Mont.

Our festival is also globally orientated meaning we not only look for Western films but also films from Africa, Asia, South America, and Australia.

Besides the CATEGORY AWARDS, there are also OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS.
